Resurfacing project in Montgomery County

Feb 8, 2018

Nearly 50 miles of road will be resurfaced in Montgomery County over the next 12 months. Montgomery County officials say the project will fix aging roadways in Pike Road and throughout the county. County Assistant Engineer Kevin Boone says the road improvement is the largest project the county has undertaken in a 12-month period. The improvements will cost $11 million total, with the bulk of the funding coming from federal money and the remaining in county money. County Assistant Engineer Kevin Boone says the average lifespan of asphalt is 10 years, making the improvements expensive but necessary. The project is the first road improvement of its kind since 2005. County officials expect the improvements to be completed by the end of the year.
