Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett and a host of elected local and federal officials recently celebrated the completion of a road repaving project that improved more than 43 miles of seven roadways using $6.744 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding.
The funds for this project employed 50 people -- 47 by the paving contractor and three contract inspectors hired by the County. The selected roads were designated as high priority projects by the County’s Department of Transportation (MCDOT) because of their deteriorated condition.
For the seven repaving projects, the Division of Highway Services (DHS) removed and replaced defective curbs, gutters, sidewalks and pavement surfaces; patched pavement; and installed pavement line markings and raised, reflective pavement markers.
