City resurfacing streets this week

A street resurfacing project was launched in Hartselle Monday thanks to schools being closed for spring break and having a three-day window of dry weather.

“We were fortunate to have Reed Contracting available this week while students are on spring break,” Mayor Don Hall said. “This will make it possible for scheduled resurfacing to be done on several streets in the vicinity of the junior high and intermediate schools.

Streets he referenced include Haig (from Sparkman to Bullard), Petain (from Sparkman to Railroad), Day (from Sparkman to Comer), Sherrill (from Sparkman to Railroad), Crest Circle, Hill (from Mynatt to car wash) and Railroad (from Hickory to 300 feet south).

Hall said the resurfacing project was carried over from last July, when Reed submitted a quote to repave all or parts of 20 city streets for $300,581.40. That list included Hammitt (from Main to College), Chestnut  (from Railroad to Milner), Moss, Groover, Little Drive, Hickory Stick, Ridgedale Dr., Flint Pointe Circle, Ferncrest, Hickory, Railroad Street (from Sherrill to Bullard) Bethel St. (500 ft.), Hillview, Oakwood and Comer (from Sherrill to Day).

“We want to complete the work on streets near the schools this week,” Hall said.

Hartselle is responsible for the maintenance of approximately 267 miles of roadway, with gasoline taxes generating about $85,000 to $90,000 annually for that purpose.
