More than $1.2 million could be reallocated to the city’s street resurfacing program — meaning an additional 12 miles of primary and secondary roadways citywide would be paved through August.

The resolution to move $1,266,774 is expected to be introduced Tuesday to city council. The money comes from finalized projects with remaining balances and others that were budgeted but won’t begin in 2014, public works director Mike Gable said.

If the funding is approved, which Mr. Gable said he anticipates, the city will be able to pave a total of 40 miles of streets in 2014, only half of what Pittsburgh should be doing per year to keep up with the 10-year lifespan of asphalt.
