Hamilton County OK’s spending $500,000 more to fix the W Road

Work to stabilize W Road continues
After heavy rains washed out part of the W Road on Signal Mountain, Hamilton County engineers sought the help of GeoStabilization International, a company that will help to repair the road. The work, which should be completed in about nine weeks, is estimated to cost $776,000.

Hamilton County Commissioners today authorized an additional $500,000 to repair Signal Mountain's W Road.

That brings the repair budget for the road to nearly $1.3 million.

Today's expense is for a new portion of the road damaged recently by heavy rain.

Officials say the additional repairs are not expected to add additional time to the road closure. It is expected to reopen in eight to 10 weeks.
