City of Alcoa announced today that it has begun the resurfacing of Gill Street, Maple Street, and North Wright Road between E. Hunt Road and US 129. Project contractor, Harrison Construction, will be removing the existing pavement by first milling each of the three streets followed by laying a new asphalt surface and replacing line markings. Paving should be complete by the end of next week.
Resurfacing will renew, protect and extend the service life of the streets; improve ride comfort and safety; and provide a smooth pavement surface.
Flaggers will be present to direct traffic as needed. Be prepared that short term road closures may occur from time to time. Until the new pavement is laid, motorists are reminded to use caution while driving on the rough road base and around the construction zone. Motorists should allow extra travel time to reach their destination along these routes.
