DORA – Work started this week on a section of Sharon Boulevard which carries most of the traffic in the city, according to Dora Mayor Randy Stephens. “We are pleased to be able to complete the resurfacing of the street started a few years back,” Stephens said.
“This would not have been possible without the help of District 4 County Commissioner, Steven Aderholt,” Stephens said.
This project has a price tag of around $200,000. The city took $50,000 from the profits generated at the Horse Creek golf course and put it with other funding city funding. Commissioner Aderholt matched the funding which allowed two miles of Sharon Boulevard to be resurfaced instead of one mile.
“I appreciate the opportunity to work together with the City of Dora on extending our previous paving project on Sharon Boulevard which began in 2015,” Aderhold said.
District 4 resources are limited, according to Aderholt. “However, based on funding projections for 2019 I am more confident in making these necessary repairs to one of the highest traveled roads in my district, connecting I-22 to Dora and Sumiton,” he said. “It's always a pleasure to work with Mayor Stephens and all other municipal leaders in my district who work hard to make our communities and county a better place to live,” he said.
Aderholt said he looks forward to sharing some exciting news in 2019 which may have a significant impact on funding for district-wide paving projects, including potential federal infrastructure dollars from the Trump administration.
