Jefferson City will move ahead with its annual summer street repair project, including work on nearly 35 miles of road.
The city council unanimiously approved a project bid from Jefferson Asphalt for $987,787 at Monday night’s meeting.
The project is done in three parts: sealing roads, micro- surfacing, and mill and overlay.
The least-involved part places a protective seal on about 16.7 miles of streets. Smith said these are new or recently repaved roads.
The bid for that project is $97,000.
Work would mostly focus on 6.62 miles of streets in Ward 1 and 4.34 miles in Ward 3.
Other areas, about 3.21 miles, will undergo a process called micro-surfacing.

The micro-surfacing part of the project is bid at $142,692, with work mostly planned on 0.69 of a mile of road in Ward 4 and 2.24 miles in Ward 5.
The last and largest piece of the project is mill and surface overlay of 15.07 miles of street.
The overlay portion is bid at $968,030, with a focus on 5.82 miles in Ward 2 and and 6.74 miles in Ward 3.
Projects tend to be close together so the contractor doesn’t need to move equipment as often, thereby saving time and money.
