Milton will begin its fall paving schedule beginning Wednesday, Sept. 19, said Carter Lucas, Milton's director of Public Works.
Lucas said the first leg of paving will take two weeks and affect Haygood and Bethany roads to Providence Road. Over the next 60 days a number of other roads will also be repaved, with work finishing Nov. 19, according to a news release from the city.
The general access roads to be paved or improved include:
- Haygood Road
- Bethany Road from Bethany Way to Providence Road
- Batesville Road from Ga. 372 to the Cherokee County line
- Cowart Road (patching)
Residential roads to be paved or improved 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
Roads will remain open during the paving, but will be reduced to one travel lane. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes if possible during the construction period, Lucas said.
"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 to be carried out by Blount Construction Company.
