In two months, locals will see crews paving the roads for all of Washington County.
The project will repair and rehabilitate sections of roads throughout the county. The county received two bids for the project. The lowest bid received was $2.8 million. Currently, the project will cost about $5 million. All local funds are out of the pavement maintenance project. The budget for the project is approximately $3 million.
“Part of the projects include hot mix asphalt overlays, crack filling, patching, milling and pavement markings on approximately 19 miles of road,” said Scott Hobbs, director of engineering at Washington County.
Pavement operations will begin in April of this year and end in October. Officials say public notices will be made prior to the start of construction. and while motorists may experience some minor delays, there should be no major road closures.
