Green Drive bid to be advertised
By Gary Lloyd
The bid for the Green Drive repair is being advertised beginning Friday.
Bids will likely be received by the city of Trussville Sept. 3.
Replacing a culvert on Green Drive in Trussville will cost more than $50,000, likely to be in the hundreds of thousands.
Trussville Mayor Gene Melton said earlier this month that Green Drive may not reopen until mid October.
Green Drive needs a culvert replacement, a result of one collapsing in May. The Trussville City Council approved Schoel Engineering doing the engineering for the Green Drive repair at a cost of $30,600 earlier this year.
Green Drive remains closed from Norrell Drive to Trussville-Clay Road.
The closed road is a popular link from Chalkville Mountain Road to Trussville-Clay Road, on which Hewitt-Trussville Middle School is located.
