The Meade Lake Road Resurfacing Project is set to get underway beginning on Monday, November 4, 2013. The project, more than 1.5 miles in length, will address road issues while also enhancing safety features on one of Atoka’s most heavily-traveled roads.
The Town of Atoka is scheduled to begin the 2013 Meade Lake Road Resurfacing Project on Monday, Nov. 4. The project, starting at Atoka-Idaville Road and continuing south to Rainey Street, will be completed by Lehman-Roberts, Inc. of Memphis.
The repaving project is funded with Surface Transportation Program dollars administered by the Tennessee Department of Transportation. The project scope includes correcting any major existing road issues, repaving both traffic lanes, adding shoulder area where possible, re-striping the road surface and installing guard rails at ponds and major ditches. Work is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
As a part of the project, a tree will be removed on the west side of Meade Lake Road just south of the first pond when traveling south from Atoka-Idaville Road. There may be temporary road closures to protect traffic and the pavement surface during the tree removal.
Throughout the project, Meade Lake Road will remain open to traffic – however, temporary closures and flag men will be present throughout the project to provide for traffic safety and flow. Daily paving work is not expected to begin until after 8 a.m. to avoid significant disruption to morning commuter traffic.
Please use caution when traveling on Meade Lake Road when workers are present during the project. Drivers are advised to consider alternate routes where possible.
Updates throughout the project will be posted online at www.TownofAtoka.com and at www.Facebook.com/TownofAtoka.
