project mapBeginning Thursday, August 9 the contractor working for the City of Paducah, Jim Smith Contracting, will be initiating a milling and paving project in the Heather Hills neighborhood.  The work is expected to be completed in one week, weather-permitting.  During the street resurfacing work, crews expect to keep one lane of traffic open. 

Portions of the following roads in Heather Hills will be milled, and then the entire roadway sections will be paved.

  • Malborough Way (between Sherwood Road and Hedge Lane intersections
  • Mayfair Place
  • Sherwood Road (from 3663 house address to deadend of street)

Beginning Monday, August 13, crews will begin milling several roads in the Little Avenue neighborhood.  After the paving crews finish working in the Heather Hills neighborhood, it will take approximately one week for crews to complete the paving in the Little Avenue neighborhood.  Crews plan to keep one lane of traffic open during this project; however, to maneuver equipment, there will be temporary closures to Bloom Avenue and Chester Hack Drive.

The roadways that will be milled and paved are as follows:

  • Bloom Avenue (between Bechtold Road and Chester Hack Drive)
  • Blow Avenue (from Little Avenue to deadend of street)
  • Chester Hack Drive (between Little Avenue and Bloom Avenue)
  • Little Avenue (between the railroad and State Street)
