Resurfacing of Moss Hill Drive has been delayed again due to difficulty in scheduling contractors.

The work had been set for May 22, with the intention of putting it off until school was out for the summer.

Mayor Tim Kent said they have had to move it later because of efforts to get someone to level the street prior to paving.

The work is tentatively now set for May 31. Whether it actually begins that day, residents who use the street may want to use caution and possibly consider using alternate routes if possible.

City officials have designated streets in each ward for maintenance work using about $1 million that is in the street budget. Moss Hill Drive was given priority because of its length and heavy use. It also is in more than one ward.

A problem has been finding contractors willing to do the relatively small jobs the city needs, and the contractors are dependent on a limited number of asphalt plants that may not be open for production unless they have large jobs.
