Stone Drive Paving Project Delayed
A single bid at higher than estimated cost has put a major project on hold in the Model City. Kingsport city manager John Campbell says the Stone Drive resurfacing project will be pushed back to later this year. The bid came from W&L Construction at $2.5 million, more than TDOT estimated. Now officials say they’ll try to get more bids later this summer. The project will repave a little over three miles going from Fairmont Avenue to Brookside Drive, a section of Stone Drive that hasn’t been repaved in 20 years. When workers do begin construction, they plan to during overnight ours to repave all seven lanes.
