Officials remind residents of nighttime roadwork
Russellville Police Chief Chris Hargett asked residents to remember to keep all vehicles clear of Jackson Avenue between Cotaco and Tuscaloosa streets once the nighttime roadwork begins on Monday.
Hargett said there should be no cars parked in that section of Jackson Avenue between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. while the milling work for the first stage of the Jackson Avenue resurfacing process is completed.
“The milling work is probably going to take a few days and we just ask that citizens remove their cars and stay informed on the paving schedules during this process,” Hargett said.
He added that any cars left in the construction area would be towed if an owner could not be found to remove the car in time.
Russellville Mayor David Grissom said Rogers Group, who received the bid on the project, agreed to do the roadwork at night, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., in order to help the businesses and the downtown traffic on Jackson Avenue.
The resurfacing project is being funded through the Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program (ATRIP). The total cost of the project is $427,260 with ATRI funds covering $341,808 and the city paying a match of $85,452.
