Peachtree City awards paving contract

Peachtree City has awarded a $4.79 million contract to Atlanta Paving and Concrete to do the next round of street resurfacing this year.

City Engineer Dave Borkowski said the company offered the lowest of four bids, which ranged from $4.79 million to $7.48 million; the City Council approved the measure 5-0 on March 7.

The city plans to repave an estimated 13 miles of roads, compared to 14.5 miles last year. Approximately 41 percent of those projects will require an extensive process called full-depth reclamation. The contracted cost works out to just over $369,000 per mile, including paving, curb and gutter work, repairs and striping. About $1.8 million will come from general operating funds, with the balance derived from SPLOST revenue.

The city is also trying to get additional federal funds to repave five miles of Robinson Road.
