$53,063 added to paving budget; work started

During its regular meeting Thursday, Aug. 12, Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen unanimously approved adding $53,063 to its current resurfacing project to include three more streets in Glen Abbey: English Station Road, Fincastle Lane and Kimball Lane, where paving was already scheduled to take place.

Town engineer Darryl Smith noted in a BOMA report this move will “complete all streets within Glen Abbey Subdivision south of Derby Chase Boulevard, with the exception of Macarthur Lane and Medallion Lane, which were resurfaced in 2019.”

The contract, which had been approved in April, is with Duracap Asphalt Co. and includes resurfacing McFee Road; Glenn Abbey Boulevard (south of Derby Chase Boulevard); Port St. Charles Drive and San Martin Lane (both in Glen Abbey); Harrison Road near Mayor Bob Leonard Park; and two portions of greenway (Turkey Creek Greenway near Brixworth and another near Sonja Drive to the Cove at Turkey Creek subdivision.

Total cost estimate is $805,224.85.

Officials issued an announcement late last week that Town-wide paving began Monday, Aug. 30, in the following areas:

• McFee Road – Old Stage Road to Boyd Station Road, including tie-ins to side streets (except in front of Bridgemore);

• Glen Abbey Boulevard – Derby Chase southward to the cul-de-sac;

• Glen Abbey side streets – Port Charles Drive, San Martin Lane, English Station Road, Kimball Lane and Fincastle Lane;

• Harrison Road – Watt Road to Town limit, and;

• Brixworth walkpath – Turkey Creek Road north to Banbury Road.

Town officials ask residents not to park on these streets from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. until resurfacing is complete.

Note that rain may delay work. Drive slowly on new surfaces and around workers.

Tree limbs encroaching the road may be damaged by paving equipment. If you trim limbs yourself, do so prior to resurfacing.
