City OKs $87,000 for road ex­ten­sion

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - ARKANSAS -

North Lit­tle Rock’s City Coun­cil ap­proved last week adding $87,000 to the Counts Massie Road ex­ten­sion project in con­junc­tion with neigh­bor­ing Maumelle for de­sign and engi­neer­ing ser­vices.

The con­tract is with McClel­land Engi­neers. North Lit­tle Rock’s share of the cost is $61,770, with Maumelle pay­ing $25,230.

The North Lit­tle Rock City Coun­cil ap­proved in Au­gust a $445,131 con­tract for its share of the Counts Massie ex­ten­sion, which is in­tended to lead to a new en­trance/ exit off In­ter­state 40 and pro­vide a link to Maumelle Boule­vard, which tra­verses both cities.

“We wanted to hire the en­gi­neer who did the de­sign work for Maumelle’s part,” said Nathan Hamil­ton, North Lit­tle Rock’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor. “We feel more com­fort­able hav­ing that same out­fit to keep an eye on it while con­struc­tion is pro­gress­ing.”
