Asphalt price increases may result in fewer streets paved

A 17 percent increase in the price of asphalt since last year may mean the city of Bardstown won’t be able to pave all the streets it had included on its list for the $550,000 it had budgeted this year for resurfacing.

Civil Engineer Jessica Filiatreau said that unless the city gets a grant from the state, frees up some money by deferring some maintenance or amends its budget to take money from another area, it may not be able to do all of them this time.

“This year it’s kind of up in the air as to which ones are going to get cut,” she said.
