County Approves Several Re-Paving Projects

Several miles of road in Putnam County will be re-paved over the next year, using money from what's called the "State Aid" program.  The county commission this week agreed to commit to twenty percent of the cost of repaving several roads, with the state of Tennessee picking up the rest.  Among the roads on that list are just over two and a half miles of Cookeville Boat Dock Road, from the county line north; about a mile of Lovelady Road from Bunker Hill Road to the Cookeville city limits; and short sections of Rocky Point Road and Sand Springs Church Road, off Highway 70-North.  Road Supervisor Randy Jones says about $300,000 has been budgeted for the work.
