Hwy. 78 work behind schedule in county
Milling and resurfacing of U.S. 78 from West Holly Springs exit to the Marshall/Benton county line is behind schedule, according to Mitch Turner, engineer with the Mississippi Department of Transportation, District 2.
Rogers Group started work on December 12, 2011, after receiving notice to proceed July 7, 2011, he said. District 1 is handling inspection on the project, he said.
The Highway 78 segment being done by Rogers Group is scheduled for completion November 13, Turner said.
“As of now they are 36.59 percent complete with 71.17 percent elapsed time,” Turner said. “As with any project that extends past completion date or exceeds the allotted number of work days, Rogers Group would be charged liquidated damages (if they do not complete the work on schedule).”
There was some rework of paving on a section of the highway west of the West Holly Springs Exit by Lehman-Roberts. The areas of repaving were from Byhalia to the West Holly Springs Exit, Turner said.
Turner said Lehman-Roberts had placed some 19.5 mm mix but was not satisfied with the profile, so the company milled some of it off at its own expense to provide a smoother ride. Lehman-Roberts also had some areas at bridge ends, temporarily paved to provide a smooth transition, that are now being milled to accept the final layer of asphalt, he said.
