The sooner the better, said Assistant Hubbard County Engineer Jed Nordin, on the $64,000 question bugging motorists.

County Road 6 work will begin as soon as weight limits are lifted and the contractor can get going, Nordin said. The highway also goes by the moniker Henrietta Avenue.

The one-mile stretch of jagged bituminous pavement is in sad shape from Highway 34 south to Hubbard County 15.

And it’s going to cost a bit more than $64,000 to fix – almost three times that amount.

Two inches of the washboard surface will be milled down and a two-inch fresh overlay applied.

Some of the cracks are at least two inches deep.

Tri City Paving of Little Falls was awarded the contract.

Road restrictions were lifted Monday in the southern part of the state and the west central area usually sees weight limits lifted by mid-May.

“As soon as the contractor can get their plant set up somewhere and schedule the work,” the project will get under way, Nordin said.

The milled asphalt will be recycled, either onto the County Road 6 project or another job, Nordin said.
