Supervisors approve estimate for patching R65

At their meeting on Monday, Sept. 30, the county Board of Supervisors approved the engineer’s estimate for roadwork on R65. County Engineer Adam Clemons plans on patching the road with hot mix asphalt, from C54 to Rowan. Clemons says that the county will let (ask for bids) the project in December, then work will probably begin in the spring or summer of 2014.

                As of right now, the plans call for 67 patches on a roughly five-mile stretch of R65.

                “Depending on where the bids come in, we might have to subtract or add patches,” Clemons said. “There’s some long ones. There’s 129-footer, there’s a 130-footer, an 180-footer. It’s that outside wheel length that we get. We usually get the asphalt rolling off.”
