Crews with Falcon Construction Co. Monday will continue work to pave Highway 182 from the Alabama state line to Plymouth Road, with work near the Luxapalilla Bridge.
David Armstrong, the city”s chief operations officer, said Thursday that crews are remilling and placing about 1.5 inches of asphalt on 10 miles of road. The project, which is paid for with American Reinvestment and Recovery Act funds, likely will be completed by mid-October.
In March, the state awarded a $3.4 million contract to pave Highway 182 and $2.906 million to replace two bridges on Highway 182 near the West Bank Port.
The project did not require a city match on the grant funds.
