Waiting on Grass
CREWS ARE WAITING on grass to grow before completing the last bit of work on Rice Road.
Although the overlay project is nearly finished, Madison County is still holding some of the contractor’s money until the job is done, officials said last week.
“We are having problems with the shoulders washing due to abnormally heavy rains and the lack of a substantial stand of grass,” said Jimmy Vickers, construction manager with Warnock and Associates.
