Construction on three road-improvement projects are expected to start this summer in York City.

Earlier this week, the York City Council approved a $272,284 contract with Shiloh Paving & Excavating for work on sections of South Pine, South Lehman and East Philadelphia streets.

The city received four bids on the project, and Shiloh emerged the lowest bidder.

The projects will most likely start in July and end in September, said Jim Gross, the city's director of public works.

Construction crews will pave South Pine Street between Rockdale Avenue and Rathton Road, Gross said.

Crews will ready South Lehman Street between King and Princess streets for utility companies to do replacement work. Final paving of the street is scheduled for 2015, Gross said.

And, finally, paving is planned for the 300 and 1200 blocks of East Philadelphia Street.

York City annually budgets for road improvements. The money to cover the cost was included in the 2014 budget's liquid fuels fund.
