By NEAL WAGNER / Managing Editor

ALABASTER – Crews will work this summer to repave several roadways throughout the city, and are planning to bid out the projects in mid-June.

During a May 20 meeting, the Alabaster City Council approved a $5,000 bid with the Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood engineering firm to prepare the bid book for the projects, and approved a $15,000 bid with the firm to conduct construction engineering and inspections for the projects.

The city is set to open bids on the repaving projects at 9:30 a.m. on June 13, and the council likely will vote to award the bids at its June 17 meeting, said Alabaster City Administrator Brian Binzer.

Once the bids are approved, crews will begin working to repave the roadways this summer.

Alabaster is planning to bid out the following road repaving projects:

-Lake Forest subdivision: Red Bay Trail, Red Bay Cove, Scenic Lake Cove, a portion of Scenic Lake Drive and a portion of Red Bay Drive

-Scottsdale: Mitch Lane and a portion of Heather Lane

-Lacey’s Grove: Crider Road and a portion of Lacey’s Avenue

-Sugar Hill: Sugar Hill Lane and a portion of Hill Spun Road

-Wisteria: all roads

-Mountain Lake: all roads

-Fox Valley Drive: entire road

-Limestone Park Drive between U.S. 31 and the entrance to the Alabaster Police Department firing range

-Fox Valley Highlands is a private road, and is being bid out alongside the city repaving projects, but is being funded by the Fox Valley Highlands Homeowners Association.
