College City road to be resurfaced
The Arkansas State Highway Commission has approved a bid for improvements to a roadway in Lawrence County, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department officials.
The purpose of the project is to resurface 0.7 mile of Fulbright Avenue in College City. The work will extend east from U.S. Highway 67 to Stafford Lane.
Chester Bross Construction Co. of Hannibal, Mo., was awarded the contract at $279,003.
This project is being funded through the State Aid City Streets Program approved by lawmakers in 2011 and voters in 2012. This program provides $20 million annually from the state motor fuels tax to assist cities with projects selected by a nine-member panel of Arkansas mayors.
Construction is scheduled to begin in two to four weeks, weather permitting, and should be complete this summer.
