Green Drive repair will take 2 months
By Gary Lloyd
Trussville Streets and Sanitation Superintendent Wayne Sullivan said at Tuesday’s Trussville City Council meeting that replacing and repairing culverts on Green Drive will take about two months.
The city sent out bids for the project last week and is expected to open them next Wednesday or Thursday.
Mayor Gene Melton estimated that the work will be complete by late October or mid November.
Replacing a culvert on Green Drive in Trussville will cost more than $50,000, likely to be in the hundreds of thousands. One collapsed 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.
