MERIDEN — The city is preparing to pave several roads next month as part of its annual paving program. 

The roads scheduled for paving include: Liberty Street from Cottage Street to Gravel Street; Murdock Avenue from the Wallingford town line to Paddock Avenue; Murray Street from East Main Street to Wall Street; Wall Street from Murray Street to Gravel Street; Pomeroy Avenue from the intersection of East Main Street to Ives Avenue; and West Main Street from Sylvan Avenue to the Southington town line.  

Associate City Engineer Howard Weissberg said milling work started last month and will finish this week with the milling of the section of West Main Street. Paving is expected to start in early September, Weissberg said. 

The milling work on West Main Street will take place through Friday, the city said in a press release. Crews will be working from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Detours will be in place throughout the project, with some periodic short-term closures, the release said. 

Weissberg said the paving will cost about $800,000.
