Road crews finished preliminary re-surfacing of a busy Ledo Road Friday.

Oxford Construction re-paved a stretch of the road near U. S. 19 this week.  It's the latest in an over half-a million dollar effort to maintain roads around Lee County.

"It's just like a car or anything else," said Mike Sistrunk, Lee County Public Works Director.  "When roads are paved and stuff like that, they have a durability of life.  The sun...we've had a lot of droughts the last couple years, dehydrates out the road and everything.  It's important for us to give life back to the roads, and sometimes you can do it with resurfacing."

Thundering Springs, Century and Stocks Dairy roads were resurfaced earlier this year.

Workers are expected to return to place pavement marks within the next few weeks.
