10th Avenue project 60 percent complete

City officials said Thursday several months of work remain on a 10th Avenue repaving project.
The $2.4 million repaving of one of Meridian's most traveled roads includes widening, resurfacing and curb and gutter improvements between 26th Street and North Hills Street.
The contractor is Jellenc Construction of Lauderdale County. Jellenc workers started the project in early May and have 250 working days roughly one year to complete it.
Jackson said crews are currently working to build a retaining wall on the north side of 33rd Street before beginning repaving beyond the street. However, Jackson said construction crews are proceeding with curb and gutter work beyond the 33rd Street while the retaining wall is being built.
Jackson said he is pleased with the way Jellenc officials have handled potential delays caused by recent rainfall.
Jackson said one portion of the project is almost complete; workers only need to put down two more courses of asphalt from 26th Street to 33rd Street. A course is a layer of asphalt about 2 inches thick.
A completion date for the project has not been set. Jellenc's contract expires in May 2001.
