Scott commissioners have awarded a $1.9 million contract to Golden Triangle Construction in North Fayette to resurface Rockfield and Swallow Hill roads.

Work on Rockfield, a concrete street in the 3rd Ward, will start Sept. 30 and be completed by mid-November, according to Chip Dalesandro of Golden Triangle, who spoke to commissioners Tuesday night.

The road will be closed and marked with "local traffic only" signs, permitting access by residents living in the 14 homes on the road, Mr. Dalesandro said.

Crews will work four 10-hour days, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with no work done during the night.

Work on Swallow Hill is expected to start in mid-March and could continue to mid-July, township engineer Larry Lennon said.

Mr. Dalesandro said he would develop a traffic plan in early winter to accommodate traffic on Swallow Hill, which is a heavily traveled, hilly, two-lane road in Ward 2.

He assured 2nd Ward Commissioner Bill Wells that Port Authority buses and emergency vehicles would be able to travel the road.

The surface of the concrete portion of Swallow Hill between Scrub Grass and Greentree roads will be repaired with concrete. The section between Greentree and Forsythe roads will be resurfaced with asphalt, which is its existing surface.

Scott officials took out a bond to pay for the road repairs.

Golden Triangle was the lowest of five bidders. Of the $1.9 million contract total, $1.7 million will be used to resurface Swallow Hill and $225,080 for Rockfield.

Mr. Dalesandro noted that Golden Triangle was the second lowest bidder when Swallow Hill was last redone in 1988.
