Paving Projects In Villa Rica To Be Complete By End Of Year

More than seven miles of Villa Rica roads and one subdivision are being targeted for repaving, as City Council shored up funding for the effort.

The City Council voted Tuesday night to award a contract to HEH Paving Inc. to furnish and install all materials, labor, tools, equipment, and related services required for the road resurfacing program. Sealed bids were accepted for the project and HEH was the low-bidder and is responsible for the milling, paving, patching, striping, and related appurtenances on 18 roads within Villa Rica. If funds remain, the City Council authorized the paving of The Trails at Charleston Place subdivision west of SR 61.

The paving project will cost nearly $580,000 and is expected to be complete by December 31, 2016. The project is being funded with $304,750 from its 2008 Carroll County SPLOST fund earmarked for roads combined with $274,705 in 2015 and 2016 Local Maintenance & Improvement Grant (LMIG) funds from the Georgia Department of Transportation, which includes a 30 percent match from the city’s General Fund.
