Milton Continues Paving Roads Through End of Year
Paving and repairs on Batesville and Birmingham roads should be completed by end of November.
November is almost here, but that won't stop Milton from continue its fall paving schedule. Carter Lucas, Milton's director of Public Works said paving schedule through the end of the calendar year to serve the most residents.
Lucas said in a news release today that paving and repairs on Batesville Road from Ga. 372 (Birmingham Highway) to the Cherokee County line and Birmingham Road from Ga. 372 (Birmingham Highway) to Freemanville Road will both be finished before November.
After that work is done, crews will move on to paving or improving residential roads. These include:
- Gunston Hall Circle
- Gunston Hall Drive
- Old North Park Lane
- Providence Farms Lane
- Stonebrook Farms Road
- Orchard Bend Trail
- Beringer Court
- South Vineyard Way
- Country Ridge Road (surface treatment only)
- Richmond Glen - all roads (surface treatment only)
Roads will remain open during the paving, but will be reduced to one travel lane. Lucas advised motorists to use alternate routes if possible during the construction period.
"But if you must drive through the construction zone, use extreme caution and please drive slowly," said Lucas.
These roads were identified as being the most in need of repair in the city's pavement management plan approved in 2009 by City Council. The $1.7 million contract for the projects is being carried out by Blount Construction Company.
