Improvements for eight sections of secondary roads are also included in this contract.

A separate $1.8 million contract includes milling, resurfacing and grading shoulders along seven miles of 12 secondary roads. Sections of Stinson Hartis Road, Tilley Morris Road, Price Shortcut Road, and Brief Road are included in the list of improvements.

Work on both contracts can start as soon as the end of April, wrapping up by July 1, 2022.
