MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Martinsburg officials hope to complete as many as 18 street-resurfacing projects this spring and create three handicapped parking spaces at two parks as part of the city’s paving program.

Depending on the outcome of the bidding process, the work could be awarded May 10 by the Martinsburg City Council.

City Manager Mark Baldwin said recently that he hopes the improvements can be completed by June 30, the end of the fiscal year.

Two parking spaces for the handicapped are being eyed for P.O. Faulkner Park, and city officials want to put another in War Memorial Park.

Among the paving projects on the list are the driveway for the historic home of the city’s founder, Revolutionary War Major Gen. Adam Stephen, at 309 E. John St.

Repaving work is also being considered for the following streets:

  • Lake View Drive, from Lincoln Drive to Baltimore Street.
  • East Race Street, from High Street to Gussie Avenue.
  • East Burke Street, from the CSX railroad track to Teneno Street.
  • Albert Street, from Vicky Bullett Street to Bachman Lane.
  • Bachman Lane, from Albert Street to High Street.
  • Bumble Bee Lane, from Legion Street to Woodbury Avenue.
  • Central Avenue, from Jerson Avenue to Matilda Court.
  • Mahogany Court/Noah’s Court, from Central Avenue to the end.
  • Matilda Court/Waxed Cherry Court, from Central Avenue to the end.
  • Jefferson Street, from Texas Street to Virginia Avenue; Elizabeth Street, from Adams Street to Hess Avenue.
  • Meadowbrook Drive, from Rock Cliff Drive to Rosewood Drive.
  • Rolling Meadows Drive, from Jerson Avenue to Lemir Street and Pendleton Drive, from Rock Cliff Drive to Tavern Road.
If funding is available, city officials also intend to pave 860 feet of Cypress Way, from Oak Street to the end; 740 feet of Walnut Street from East Stephen Street to the end and 400 feet of Spruce Street, from Cypress Way to the end.
