Streets near Carroll County Courthouse to close for repairs
Tuesday, October 22, 2013 11:00 AM
Two streets near the Carroll County Courthouse will close for milling and paving work at the end of the week.
Ohio Valley Asphalt workers plan to mill and pave Court and Fifth streets from Main Street to Highland Avenue beginning Friday, Mayor Gene McMurry said. Both streets will close at midnight on Thursday and Sunday so that work can be completed the next day.
Weather permitting, milling of the two streets will begin at 7 a.m. on Friday. Paving will begin at 7 a.m. on Monday. All vehicles should be moved from both streets by 6 a.m. on Friday and again on Monday for the repair work, he said.
Streets will reopen after each process is completed, and streets are not expected to be closed for a full day on either day.
Carroll County Judge-Executive Harold "Shorty" Tomlinson said visitors to the Courthouse should park along Main Street or wherever they can find a parking space in the area.
"It is going to be very congested," he said, and asked that people use extra caution when traveling in the area.
The city regrets the inconvenience of the road closure, McMurry said, but the project is necessary to prevent further deterioration of the street surface.
Carrollton City Council members accepted a $102,111 bid for the road work from Ohio Valley Asphalt in August.
