Tower Ridge Drive
The project is complete and open to traffic.
Shady Rest Lane
The contractor has begun excavating and subgrade preparation on the section from Walton to Corinth Parkway. Rains and underground water sources have delayed preparation of the subgrade around the Walton intersection. The contractor has begun installing a French drain on the west side north of Walton to capture the ground water. Upon completion of the French drain they will begin reworking the subgrade around Walton and then begin preparation for the paving operations. The paving from Walton to Corinth Parkway should be completed by early August and that section will be open to traffic. The project should be completed in the fall.
