A construction project involving a section of 10th Street is set to begin next week.

A milling and paving project will mill the asphalt, apply geotextile fabric and repave a portion of 10th Street from Macon to Hawkinsville streets, the parking lot on the south side of the Child Development Center, Bldg. 946 and the parking lot on the north and east sides of the post office.

The estimated start date for this project is Sept. 10, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 25.

The portion of 10th Street affected by the project will be partially or fully closed for two weeks.

The work will be accomplished to minimize the impact to the base population.

The schedule is tentative and subject to weather conditions and unforeseen circumstances which may be encountered.

This construction project is funded with end-of-year funds, and is one of many which have taken place this fiscal year. It's part of various restoration modernization and sustainment projects taking place across the installation.

With less than a month remaining in fiscal 2015, the base has been busy during the year with various projects in the name of progress.

Some of these projects included a construction project to replace a section of First Street with new asphalt, curb and gutter replacement and sidewalks, and a new storm water drainage system; as well as various building demolitions.
