A local maintenance improvement grant from the Georgia Department of Transportation will pay for the resurfacing of these roads, which will cost $1,007,006, according to Transportation Director Scott Greene.
Four roads are included in this contract, according to Construction Division Manager Michael Gravett. They are Bennett Road in Post 3, Cohran Store Road in Post 2, Morris Road in Post 3 and Narroway Church Circle in Post 4.
Gravett said the Department of Transportation just advertised for the bid July 27 and construction should start in late September. He said it was a 90-day contract and is part of the fiscal year 2013 Asphalt Contract I.
“I anticipate completing the work in late November,” Gravett said.
Along with the four roads being resurfaced as a part of the local maintenance improvement grant, three other roads will be resurfaced under the local general fund and 33 subdivision roads that are unfinished will be resurfaced with the development fund or agreement fund, according to Greene.
Altogether, 40 roads or streets and 17 miles of roads will be resurfaced this year under the 2013 Asphalt Contract I.
The three local roads that will be resurfaced are Foxboro Drive in Post 3, School Road in Post 4 and Bob Hunton Road in Posts 2 and 3.
Most of the subdivision streets that are being finished are in post 4 — streets in Ansleigh Farms subdivision, Edenwood subdivision and Park at Cedarcrest Unit 1 C1 Phase I. Post 4 includes the northern and western parts of the county.
Thirteen roads in Edenwood will be resurfaced.
Other subdivision roads included on the list are in Horseshoe Bend subdivision in Post 2 and Poplar Farms Phase III Post 3.
Commissioners previously approved a fee that land owners in affected subdivisions would pay when they obtained a building license, which would help pay for the unfinished roads in subdivisions.
The amount homeowners paid would be determined by dividing the amount of money needed to finish subdivision infrastructure by the number of empty lots, according to Commissioner Todd Pownall.
In other action, the board recognized and presented the Public Safety Appreciation Award to Brandon Maple for his outstanding performance with the Paulding County Fire Department.
