Alpharetta OKs $2.6M contract to resurface 50 streets

The Alpharetta City Council has awarded a more-than $2.6 million contract to resurface 50 city streets in the 2018 fiscal year.

Allied Paving Contractors Inc. submitted the lowest of five bids for the annual street milling and resurfacing contract. All of the work is to be completed by June 2018, according to a staff report to the council.

In related action, the council approved a list of streets to be submitted to the Georgia Department of Transportation with the city’s application for funding under the fiscal 2018 Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant program.

Alpharetta is in line to receive a grant of $591,569, which will require a local match of $177,470, staff said. The funds will be applied to the street resurfacing projects.
