The city of Stonecrest has awarded a $2 million paving contract to Blount Construction.  The company will begin paving and repairing 18 of the city’s worst streets as part of a project funded by a Local Maintenance Improvement Grant and matching Special Local Option Sales Tax funds.

“We are moving forward as promised. We have selected our paving contractor through the competitive bid process, and we will be starting the priority paving next month,” Mayor Jason said.

In addition to the 18 roads, Blount Construction will also pave a two-lane portion of Turner Hill Road from Rockland Road to the Bojangles Restaurant entrance.

The road construction will begin in May and is  cheduled to be completed in August.

Four other qualified companies submitted bids for the paving contract.

“Each contractor had to be GDOT certified and submit a bid bond. They were all reputable companies that have done work in the Atlanta area,” said Ken Hildebrandt, the city’s engineer.  The bid award went to the most qualified, lowest bidder.
