Laurel Park repaving gets under way Monday

LAUREL PARK — Laurel Park's summer and fall repaving project gets under way on Monday with the first of seven roads and streets getting resurfaced.

Paving crews will begin work on Trellis Lane, Davis Mountain Road, Fairway Drive, Sunny Ridge Road, Silk Tree Road, Alta Circle, and Orchard Circle. The town asked motorists and homeowners to be mindful of signage, lane closures and crews working in those areas.

Tar Heel Paving Co. submitted the low bid among four bidders to win a contract for $883,561 for work starting this summer with more work expected next year. The 2023-24 town budget appropriated $1.67 million for roadwork by next June 30. Roughly two-thirds of the work, which include drainage improvement where needed, is scheduled to take place this summer and fall with the balance coming next spring.
