Making Progress: Industrial Blvd. Repaving Project

May 31, 2009


A paving project on Industrial Boulevard in Century is nearing completion.  The $88,520 project by Roads, Inc. is to be paid for by a contracting company that the town says damaged the road during Hurricane Ivan cleanup back in 2004. Work on the two-tenths of mile project is expected to be completed this week. Roads, Inc. recently completed a repaving project on State Line Road from Highway 29 to Shady Lane for $128,437.30 funded by Local Option Sales Tax money.

The resurfacing project has made travel difficult for those that work in the Century Industrial Park and use the Camp Fire USA daycare.

    I agree with you, Stephanie about the unprofessionalism of the road repair company. Hand gestures, and verbal gesture are among some of the behavior exhibited by this group to passerbyers , even with children in the car.

    I have a child that attends Camp Fire USA located on this road. This was a very poor managed project. I have never met any company as unprofessional as Roads Inc. The first poor decision was to work on both lanes at one time. Common sense tells you that you do not tear out both lanes on a two lane road at the same time. The conditions were so bad that cars could barely drive through. This is something that the employees at Road Inc. apparently thought were funny. They even went as far as mocking an employee of Campfire by saluting her when she was trying to drive on the road and avoiding getting stuck.
