Franklin residents will see a number of orange barrels in the next several weeks as the city begins its annual street paving program.
City Council Monday awarded the 2017 paving contract to Normac Company, LLC who submitted the lowest and best bid of $371,548 for the project, which was less than the engineer’s estimate of $430,000. Two other companies submitted bids for the project.

- Foster Street, from Kristine Lane to north terminus.
- Greenup Court, from East Fourth Street to Thomas Drive.

- Millard Court, from Millard Drive to west terminus.
- Moore Drive, from Foster Street to East Second Street.

Also included in the contract will be repaving the parking lot at the Joint Emergency Medical Services District, 201 E. Sixth St. City Engineer Barry Conway told council that JEMS would reimburse the city for the costs of the project which is estimated at $15,000.
Conway said the project costs have been budgeted through the city’s street fund.
