Helper paving to begin by month's end

Repaving of Helper streets torn up by the infrastructure rebuild should begin before the end of September, representatives from Franson Civil Engineers told the city council last week.

Chad Brown said that the repaving of south Main Street is slated first because it is an important link to Spring Glen and other parts of the city.

Franson will also be working with contractors east and west of the highway to determine a good place to stop work before cold weather sets in. Repaving with a permanent surface requires warm temperatures.

Since no one can predict when the cold snap will begin, work on 100 West Street will probably be done block by block. This will avoid having a long stretch of road being unpaved through the winter months.

Meanwhile, Councilman Robert Bradley urged that next season's work in the area around Sally Mauro Elementary has got to be done early, to avoid a repeat of the transportation issues at Helper Junior High.

While the lack of direct bus access to the junior high is inconvenient, he said, it is completely unacceptable for small children to negotiate city streets.
