Sparta Begins Paving Project Work Monday

Sparta’s 2023 paving project began roadwork on Monday.

Public Works Director Dillard Quick said the project started some three years ago when the city graded the streets and began working on the worst.

“There are a few that are bad and it’s because we had to go back and do sewer and water upgrades on the road,” Quick said. “And it’s just a process. We’re going to pave 14.5 miles of road this time around.”

Quick said the work will start on North Edgewood Drive and work its way across the city. He said the work will end around Wagoner Street.

Quick said the project is funded through the sales tax collection money that was put in place in 2019. He said work should be completed after about a month.

“We know this is work that needs to be done and so we’re just asking the public to be patient with us as we go through all this work,” Quick said.
