  • After a summer filled with orange barrels and delays, a smoother and less-chaotic drive is ahead.
    This year, Green completed work on over 30 lane miles of road. Most of the planned projects have been completed, but a few final touches still have to be added along Arlington Road under Interstate 77, Arlington Ridge East and Shriver Road.
    ARLINGTON ROAD SOUTH
    Arlington Road was repaved from Nimisila Road to the south corporate line. The entire stretch was milled and repaved. Dave Hart, owner of Municipal Service Group said the stretch was repaved at the right time.
    "There was some surface wear on the road," Hart said, "but the under asphalt was in good condition."
    Four stretches of guardrail were replaced along with drainage pipes at the end of driveways. Asphalt approaches were also added to all driveways along the stretch. This project was completed two months in advance.
    GREENSBURG ROAD EAST, WEST
    Greensburg Road west was repaved from Shriver Road to Arlington Road. Driveway approaches were improved and a waterline project was completed.
    "Although there was significant money returned to the city for this project, the amount of asphalt placed never changed from the original plans," said Hart.
    The east portion of the project was milled and repaved and finished 21 days ahead of schedule. Gaurdrails were upgraded on both sides of Greensburg.
    HECKMAN ROAD
    The roadway was milled and repaved and drop-offs along the side of the road were imporoved. City of Green crews assisted in this project by cutting back trees and making improvements to ditches.
    "This was a great partnership with the city and the contractor," said Hart.
    New guardrail was also added to the small bridge as the whole project on Heckman Road was completed one month ahead of schedule.
