The city received about $350,000 Tuesday from the state to repave several streets in the south Clovis area, according to a city press release.

The city applied for the Community Block Grant to fund street improvements for low-income residential areas.

Public works director Harry Wang said the city hoped to get about $500,000 from the state to repave six streets between Mitchell and Thornton streets and Grand and Seventh streets. He said the city will have to prioritize which streets the city will repave.

He said work should start by fall.

“(The streets) have been in place since the ’70s, there wasn’t much repair work done to it (since then),” he said.
