Part of Stuart Ave may get a makeover

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Work could start as soon as next month on a paving project on a busy northwest Albany road.

City workers hope to put in a new base, and asphalt on Stuart Avenue before school starts.

 The city engineering director says as many as 10-thousand cars a day travel the road

"We had not intended to have the Kmart and the Albany Mall and other retail outlets, that took place in the middle to later part of the seventies, its been re surfaced before but that didn't last," says Bruce Maples, Director of Engineering.

The work should begin shortly after city commissioners give it a final okay later this month.
