TAMPA — Hillsborough County plans to repair 285 miles of roads using $35 million in federal aid.

The road work includes eight major corridors, fixes to roads in 89 neighborhoods and 32 so-called localized repairs involving 25 streets.

The county compiled the list using “condition inspection and commissioner input based on community feedback,” according to county documents.

The spending of American Relief Act dollars comes after commissioners learned earlier this year that catching up on maintenance of the county’s 7,200 miles of roads, plus its bridges and sidewalks, would require a $700 million investment over the next 10 years.
