White Street In Hancock To Be Repaved

The City of Hancock intends to repave White Street this year.

Bids for the project will open up April 7th to work on the heavily traveled road, which often becomes pitted with pot holes during the spring.

The project is estimated to cost around $250,000, helped out by a grant of $187,500.

Work is only expected to take a couple of days and will be completed by the end of August.

City Manager Glenn Anderson said the new road will likely last only seven to eight years given the amount of traffic and the poor sub base and then it will have to be redone.

Anderson said the plan is to keep White Street as a one-way street and to add a second bicycle lane, so that there are ones on each side of the street.
