STERLING – Two local roadwork projects will start next week.
Road repairs will begin Monday to a section of state Route 2 from 19th Avenue to Ninth Avenue.
The 0.7-mile section will be restricted to one lane. Workers will remove the existing surface, make pavement repairs, and resurface the roadway. Flaggers will direct traffic, and drivers should be prepared to stop for workers and construction equipment. Work should be completed by the end of October.
On Tuesday, repair and resurfacing will start on an 8-mile section of state Route 40 from First Street in Chadwick to Stover Avenue in Milledgeville. Flaggers will direct traffic past the project, with an expected mid-November completion date.
