Wheat Street

The Covington News - - FRONT PAGE -

The Cov­ing­ton City Coun­cil is ex­pected to vote Mon­day to re­con­struct Wheat Street, which has a lot of de­te­ri­o­ra­tion, ac­cord­ing to city of­fi­cials. The road would have to re­built by pul­ver­iz­ing the ex­ist­ing asphalt pave­ment and cre­at­ing a ce­ment-asphalt base with a sep­a­rate asphalt sur­face. The road could also be ex­panded to three lanes, if the City Coun­cil chooses. The two-lane re­pair low bid was for $330,872, while the three-lane bid was for $384,978. City staff is rec­om­mend­ing the three­lane project. State and lo­cal SPLOST money would be used.
