CINCINNATI (AP) - The city of Cincinnati has officially launched a major road-paving project, aiming to pave 120 miles of roads and maintain another 150 miles for each of the next six years.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/29agBua ) roads in 16 neighborhoods are first up in the project. The city held its ceremonial “first grind” in the Corryville neighborhood on Thursday.

The city is pumping $69 million into its roads as part of an effort that Mayor John Cranley says will work toward improving quality of life in neighborhoods.

City Manager Harry Black says proper maintenance will help save taxpayers in the long run because the cost to replace poor roads is significantly more over time than the price of maintaining them in good condition.
