Lawrence County Commissioners approved this week the advertisement for bids on the 2001 Resurfacing Contract 1, as submitted by Lawrence County Engineer David Lynd.

The contract will pave just over 20 miles of roadway on county highways, Lynd said.

However, that number of total resurfacing miles requested for 2001 was scaled back since state Issue 2 grant funds were not received this year for a resurfacing project, Lynd told commissioners Thursday by letter.

The county will apply again this fall for state Issue 2 funds for resurfacing.

Lynd expects to receive some funding next year to complete roads remaining in the Rome Township area from this year’s project, and to continue the annual resurfacing program, he said.

The proposed contract of 20.3 total miles includes all or parts of:

– County Road 2 (Greasy Ridge from Ohio 243 to Ohio 217)

– County Road 6 (Deering-Bald Knob from Ohio 243 to Ohio 217)

– County Road 56 (Possum Hollow)

– County Road 60 (Delta Lane)

– County Road 73 (Federal Creek from Ohio 217 to County Road 72)

– And County Road 450 (Grandview Avenue)

– County Road 169 was added to the contract to complete the county’s share of the reconstruction of that road as part of the new Rock Hill schools project.

Wally Haugen of the county engineer’s office was named the Prevailing Wage Rate Coordinator for the project.
