Resurfacing of 5 miles of Alabama Highway 22 between Alexander City and New Site is nearly complete.

The final layer of asphalt has been laid down on Highway 22 east and crews are now applying the top coat on the westbound side.

“We should finish the top coat on Friday, then go back and get the driveways and intersections and finish striping,” said Jeffrey Harte, the safety director of Gary Ingram Grading & Paving of Dadeville, which was contracted by the Alabama Department of Transportation to handle the project. “We’re looking to be wrapping up pretty soon.”

Work began June 21 and was scheduled to last 40 days. Resurfacing the span between Hillabee Creek Bridge to Coley Street involved milling, widening, patching and resurfacing the roadway.
