Residents of a Greenwood subdivision have a bumpy ride any time they head to work or the store, and a study will help determine whose streets need to be fixed first.
Greenwood is now hoping to fix Crystal Lakes’ roads as soon as next year, though no decision has been made. Greenwood City Council members Thom Hord and Brent Corey have been asking for repairs to the streets in the neighborhood off Smith Valley and Honey Creek roads because of all the complaints they’ve been getting from residents.
The city typically spends about $1.5 million a year on paving projects throughout the city. Much of the new asphalt goes to major thoroughfares such as Smith Valley Road, Madison Avenue and Main Street.
Greenwood is doing a study of all city streets, including those in neighborhoods, to figure out how to divvy up a limited amount of road money. The study will give city officials a better idea of which roads are worst and which have to be done now, community development services director Mark Richards said.
