Contract approved for residential street resurfacing, concrete work

Published on January 27, 2022

About 50 residential streets within the city limits of Huntsville will see improvements this year as part of a $6.9 million resurfacing contract.

The City Council on Thursday approved an agreement allowing Mayor Tommy Battle to enter into an agreement with SJ&L, the low bidder, as part of the 2022 Phase I Resurfacing Contract. Phase II will be advertised and let later this year.

A $2 million contract with Midsouth Paving was also approved this week for concrete work. Projects will include new curbs and gutters, sidewalks, driveway aprons, storm culverts and any other concrete structures. The City will perform work on an as-needed basis throughout the one-year contract.

Though the projects are largely broken down by district, Public Works Director Chris McNeese said they will benefit the entire City.


“These projects are something everyone can support because they make quality of life better for all citizens,” he said. “Street resurfacing not only improves travel for drivers, but it also enhances pedestrian safety within our residential areas.”

Resurfacing projects are chosen based on a rating system, while streets are evaluated as part of a biannual rating system. When a street’s rating exceeds a certain threshold, the City vets it for resurfacing.

Resurfacing work will likely begin in mid-February. The contractor has 180 days to complete the work.
