St. Paul Road work, other projects on go
By SUE WATSON
Construction on a much awaited road project is expected to be underway soon.
Paving of St. Paul Road has taken several years to get ready to let to contract due to the difficulty in getting some property owners to sign easements, including several properties with multiple heirs.
Kent Smith, attorney for the Marshall County Board of Supervisors, reported that all easements have been certified and documentation and a letter is in the mail to State Aid. The road project is located in District 4 and was requested for improvements by District 4 supervisor George Zinn III.
He said he has been working “since the day I came into office” to get two miles of St. Paul Road coated with chip and seal (DBST).
Other roads scheduled for improvement this work season with State Aid Program funds, pending weather, include:
Reseal projects involve leveling spots in the road that have sunken or dipped with chip and seal, reworking the shoulders, checking and cleaning out drainage pipes and ditches, inspecting safety signs and striping. The dips in the road are normally leveled out with asphalt, then covered with DBST, said Zinn.
In other business, the board of supervisors:
Winfield told supervisors the county gave $2,500 to Red Cross last year and received $12,000 in family assistance.
Red Cross spent $12,000 in Marshall County for two years in a row, Winfield said. The county is one of the largest in the five-county district, he said.
