The City of Andalusia will begin a major paving project that includes eight streets on Mon., June 25.

The council agreed earlier in the year to begin this project when the weather was conducive. Public Works Director Jim Hogg will supervise the project, with Wiregrass Construction providing the work and machinery.

Barring any unforeseen problems, the project will be completed in this order:

• Resurface Moore Road from South Three Notch to the truck route.

• Mill 4th Avenue from East Three Notch Street to Henderson Street.

• Resurface Holloway Drive from Dunson Street to Church Street.

• Resurface 4th Avenue from East Three Notch to Henderson Street.

• Resurface Lindsey Bridge Road to Easley Drive.

• Resurface Academy Drive from the railroad track crossing to Midway Drive.

• Resurface Lakeview Drive from Sanford Road to Camellia Avenue.

• Resurface Aspen Lane from Willow Lane to Grand Oak Drive.

When the project was first approved, it also included plans to resurface Feagin Street. However, the city is a contender for a CDBG grant to do extensive work on that street, including upgrading utility lines. If it were paved now, it would have to torn up to do the additional repairs, clerk John Thompson said.
