ROSWELL, Ga. — A portion of Roswell’s roads will soon be resurfaced, thanks to two votes by the Roswell City Council at Monday night’s meeting.
The council approved $1.7 million for resurfacing almost six miles of road. Funding for the project will be provided from the Citywide Road Resurfacing and Reconstruction account.
The majority of the targeted roads are within neighborhoods, including Autumn Breeze Drive, Club Walk Trace, Stroup Court and Trevelyan Way.
The project will help rejuvenate the asphalt and extend its lifespan thanks to new technology, said Director of Transportation Steve Acenbrak. This is the perfect time to start the project and reap the most benefits from the process, he added.
To help the project, the council also approved a $116,722 contract with Pavement Technology Inc., to provide rejuvenation services to portions of six roads. Those roads include: Devereux Chase, Grimes Bridge Road, Mansell Road, Mountain Park Road, Nesbit Ferry Road and Norcross Street.
Also at the meeting, several local high school students were given the chance to act as city youth officials for the first half of the meeting and both approve the consent agenda and read several proclamations. They represented several elected officials, including the mayor, councilmembers, state senator, state representative, fire chief, police chief and chief judge.
Students came from local public and private schools, such as Roswell High School, The Cottage School and Fellowship High School. Alexander Larsen, from Centennial High School, was the acting Youth Mayor for the City of Roswell during the meeting.
