Amory Road repairs wrap up

Amory Road completes a second repaving after the roadbed collapsed last May. Taking nearly a year to reengineer the roadway, city staff report the project is nearly complete and open for travel.

SMITHVILLE — Amory Road repairs in Smithville are pressing on as the final coat of asphalt was poured Wednesday, March 25.

The road underwent a repaving project that was nearly completed a year ago, but prior to completion, a heavy season of rain, ice and snow caused the roadbed to collapse a month later in May of 2019.

“The major construction work is done,” City Administrator Cynthia Wagner said. “This completed the final layer of asphalt for the roadway.”

The road is now completely back open.
