Andalusia’s city streets will get more than $829,000 in improvements in coming weeks, thanks in part to a Community Development Block Grant.

The Andalusia City Council on Tuesday accepted the low bids from Bullard Excavating, Inc., for two projects designed to improve city streets. Bob Carter of Goodwyn Mills Cawood, who designed the project, reviewed the three bids received and made the recommendation.

The first project, funded mostly by a CDBG grant, totals $268,850, and is for resurfacing parts of Woodruff Street, Third Street, Second Street, Eighth Street, and Ninth Street.

The second project, for which the city will use its gasoline tax accounts, street resurfacing account, and capital improvements account, totals $560,500.

It will resurface portions of Stratford Court, W. Meadowbrook Drive, E. Meadowbrook Drive, Ruby Lane, Adams Street, East Three Notch Court, Snead Street,  Pecan Street, Spruce Drive, Waites Street, Highland Avenue, Arnold Street, Bagley Street, Thweat, Cawthon Street, and Allen Street.
