MEDINA – Several villages streets with numerous potholes will be repaved the second week of May with help from the Orleans County Highway Department.

Peter Houseknecht, Department of Public Works superintendent for the Village of Medina, advised the Village Board this evening that the county would bring its paving machine to Medina the second week of May to help repair West Avenue, Park Avenue, the approaches near the railroad tracks on Gwinn Street and spots on Horan Road.

Sections of those streets may be milled with new pavement put down, Houseknecht said.

The DPW will use hot mix asphalt to fill other potholes in the village. The DPW also is considering pouring concrete on Orient Street near an overpass because asphalt is not holding up, Houseknecht said.
