April 26, 2008|By JOSHUA BOWMAN

The Washington County Engineering Department has started the first phase of its pavement maintenance program.

The program, which includes patching and overlaying dozens of county roads, is starting in the Halfway area.

On Thursday, the county patched and overlaid Tanglewood Court and patched Greenmount Avenue.

The county was scheduled to patch several roads Friday, including York Road from Halfway Boulevard to Marbern Road; Hollywood Road from York Road to Lexington Avenue; and Lexington Avenue from Marbern Road to U.S. 11.

Greenmount, Wolford and Lincoln avenues will be patched next week.

After all of the roads are patched, they will be overlaid.

Robert Slocum, acting director of capital projects, said the county will keep the roads open on one side during the work, which is expected to last about two weeks.

Slocum said most work will take place between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Signs will be placed on roads before work is scheduled to begin, he said.


While the roads will be open, Slocum asked that drivers who do not have to use the roads find alternate routes.
