Green Drive construction complete; now waiting on paving
By Gary Lloyd
TRUSSVILLE — Trussville Mayor Gene Melton said Monday that construction on Green Drive is complete, except for paving.
Melton said paving should be completed within the next two weeks, depending on how soon it can begin.
The Trussville City Council in September voted to award the bid for the culvert replacement and repairs to Green Drive to Bob Smith Construction for $379,000.
The road has been closed since May 2013, when one of the culverts collapsed due to stormwater washing away soil beneath the road next to the culverts.
The 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 and the Trussville Civic Center are located.
