Deep milling and asphalt repairs to Church Street and Commerce Drive should be completed this week. Starting on Tuesday, September 5, final asphalt resurfacing will begin on Church Street and extend throughout the entire project area. This phase of work should be completed in 7 to 10 days depending on the weather.
Church Street has not been resurfaced since its original construction over 40 years ago, a condition that exposed extensive block cracking along the entire roadway area and indicated asphalt paving near the end of its service life. Recent repairs should extend the useful life of the new paving for up to 20 years. Eighty percent of the funding for this project is being provided by the Georgia Department of Transportation.
How to manage
Until repairs and resurfacing are finished, sections of the roadway will remain rough and uneven. As always, motorists should drive slowly and carefully and be mindful of roadway conditions, pedestrians, contractors, and work crews.
