Fairview resurfacing projects planned in October

Mangrum Drive, which connects Cox Run Subdivision and Wiley Circle, is on the list of city streets soon to be paved by the city. 

The City of Fairview recently solicited bids for resurfacing and necessary related milling work on several city streets in need of repair. City staff conducted a survey of all city streets to prioritize paving and repair needs.

At their September 17 board meeting, the five members of the Fairview City Commission approved a resolution accepting the low bid on the project of $202,910 which was submitted by Tennessee Valley Paving Company.

The project will be expensed from the State Street Aid Fund. Each year, the Tennessee Legislature authorizes the state to distribute a portion of the proceeds from the state gasoline fuel taxes to incorporated cities for use on municipal street repairs and paving.

The city streets scheduled to see improvements include Singer Drive, Singer Court, Dice Lampley Road from Cox Pike south approximately 1,800 feet to the city limits nearest to 7189 Dice Lampley Road, Mangrum Drive from Wiley Circle west approximately 1,040 feet to the entrance of Cox Run Subdivision, McCormick Drive, McCormick Lane, Treywick Court and Pleasant Grove Court.

City Manager Scott Collins noted, “This work has been bid and should be complete within the next 30 days.” As with any outdoor project, the weather will play a role in the actual project completion date.
