HARTINGTON — A long-planned road improvement project will finally happen this year.
Cedar County Commissioners voted Jan. 22 to accept a bid of $593,375 from Elkhorn Paving Construction, Norfolk, to pave the road just south of the Hartingon city limits from Hartington Tree east to the county bridge.
The road paving project has been under consideration for over two decades, now.
Earlier this month, Hartington-Newcastle Public School Board members voted to accept a bid to pave the road that runs from the schools and connects to the county road. The Holy Trinity Finance Committee also agreed to accept the bid, Father Owen Korte said.
The County’s bid approval was contingent upon eliminating a proposed four-inch Bituminous base course and increasing pavement thickness to nine inches so heavy vehicles, such as busses won’t damage the road surface.
