Tennessee Department of Transportation recently took out bids to pave Hwy. 27 from about 450 feet east of Hwy. 29 in Harriman to Dunn Street in Rockwood.
The state awarded the contract to APAC-Atlantic, with a bid of $1.188 million.
“Preconstruction conference has not been held yet so no word on when resurfacing will begin,” said TDOT spokesman Mark Nagi. The project has a due date on or before July 31.
Harriman officials would like to see additional paving, including in Harriman’s downtown area.
