Jamestown Awards Main Street Paving Bid

The City of Jamestown will spend $186,000 to pave a portion of Main Street.

Mayor Lyndon Baines said he expects the project to get underway within the next few weeks.

“It’s going to be paving Main Street from right in front of the courthouse to the city limits. We’re going to begin where the state stopped paving Highway 52,” Baines said. “It should have been done a long time ago.”

The Jamestown City Council awarded the bid to Rogers Group during Monday night’s meeting. Baines said future project kept the city from paving the area North of Main Street.

“We’re hoping to get another grant to do some more rehabilitation to the sewers,” Baines said. “I don’t want to pave it and then have to dig it up. We’re working on the South side now, and then once we get some more rehabilitation done on the North end of town we;ll start paving that side.”

Baines said the city had budgeted $200,000 for the entire project.
