Sandusky officials steered a bit more cash than expected toward two imperative paving projects.

City commissioners on Tuesday voted 7-0 to spend an additional $32,100 through grant funds to smooth out two bumpy corridors.

The city’s total share now equals $233,700, up about 16 percent from the original estimate of $201,600.

In total, both paving projects collectively cost about $512,700, with $233,700 from Sandusky and an additional $279,000 in state funds.

Both projects, paving a total of about 1.3 miles, should start in April and finish around October.

Here are the major details of the project, provided by city officials and the state transportation department:

U.S. 250
