Jasper, GA – Pickens County Public Works is well into its paving projects having completed Old Tate Road and Burnt Mountain Road last week and currently paving Cain Trail, and Thompson Lane (Hwy. 53 West side). They also plan to be moving on to Tilley Road and Swan Bridge Road in the coming weeks.
Additionally, subcontractor crews are paving through both the Local Maintenance Improvement Grant and SPLOST funds on behalf of Pickens County. However, these roads and their timing could change due to weather and other variables.
Currently they are paving Old Philadelphia Road, Grady Street, Jackson Street, John Street, Northside Drive, Gordon Road, Myrtle Street, Arminda Street, Glyness Street, W. Gordon Road, Golden Springs Drive, and East Golden Springs Drive.
Citizens will also see work beginning soon on Firetower Road, Ray Road, Brooks Road, Lukes Path, Pineview Court, Twin Oak Court, Mountain View Court, Mountain View Drive, Collins Road, Hopkins Lane, Scenic View, Twin Oaks Circle, Camp Road (53 to Refuge Road section), Still Hollow Road, West Laurel Trace, East Laurel Trace, West Boling Road, East Boling Road, Turner Road, and Turner Road Extension.
This is not necessarily all the roads that will be paved, as some could be added in the months to come depending on the timing of the current roads that are being paved and other various factors according to Public Information Officer Tucker Green.
