SPRING HOPE — Walking around Spring Hope will soon be safer thanks to improvements to more than 2,500 square feet of sidewalk.
The Spring Hope Board of Commissioners recently approved a contract with Nashville-based Marshall’s Construction for the removal and replacement of 2,561 square feet of sidewalk at a price of $9.25 per square foot.
The project’s budget totals $24,900, which includes traffic control, labor, materials and disposal of old concrete, according to the proposal town board members approved.
The sidewalks needing repairs were selected with input from Stocks Engineering and Envirolink, the company contracted to perform public works for the town.
Town Manager Jae Kim said concrete can’t be poured on rainy days, but he expects the project to still be completed within 30 days. Since Marshall’s Construction will be in charge of traffic control, Kim said the job should be done quickly.
The repairs are separate from a state grant project to expand sidewalks in strategic, high-traffic areas around the elementary school and shopping center.
