Expect construction workers and slow traffic this summer and fall on some of the busy roads you take through Greenwood and the Center Grove area to get to school or work.
Workers are grinding down existing sections of street and then repaving them. Roads won’t be closing, but workers with flags will direct motorists around the sections getting repaired, city community development services director Mark Richards said.
The project started about two weeks ago, and work has begun on Stones Crossing, Demaree and Curry roads.
Repaving and adding new curb ramps and stone will cost about $1.3 million, and the contractor is required to have the work finished in October, Richards said.
Stones Crossing Road is the most expensive part of Greenwood’s 2014 repaving plans, costing about $286,000 for fixes to sections of the road east and west of Honey Creek Road.
The developer of the Cobblestone subdivision off Demaree Road recently repaved sections of Demaree and Stones Crossing roads, so the city will fix remaining sections of the street, instead of a full length of road, Richards said.
Besides milling down and pouring new asphalt on streets, workers also will add new crushed stone to shoulders between ditches and roads.
Another main street, Fry Road, will get about $234,000 in work.
