Toccoa street resurfacing projects begin tomorrow

The City of Toccoa will begin the process to resurface nine city streets on

Tuesday, June 30, starting with Rose Lane.

The resurfacing will be done in partnership with Stephens County utilizing their paving crew. If all goes as planned, the project will be completed this paving season, stated Toccoa City Manager Billy Morse.

“The first street to be resurfaced will be Rose Lane. It will require a two-step process to apply a chip seal layer this week, to be followed with a smooth driving surface in mid-July," Morse stated.

Chip seal is necessary to add strength and longevity to the roadbed. Chip seal is a temporary driving surface that can leave loose stones and a rough driving surface until the final smooth surface is applied. The City appreciates the public’s understanding and cooperation during the construction phase.

Once Rose Lane is completed, then the County crew will move on to resurface the other City streets which will include all or portions of the following streets:

Skyview Lane

Arlene Street

North Pine Street

Meadowbrook Drive

Hayes Street

Laurel Hill Court

Elberton Street

Morgan Street

All resurfacing work is expected to be completed in 2020.
