Johnson Road Construction

The Johnson Road Paving Project is underway. Crews with Luxa Construction are completing the paving of Johnson Road from Jack Sutton Drive to Morningside Road. Luxa was awarded the contract for the work in April 2019, for $1.6 million.

Due to the weather, timing, and drainage issues, the work was not started until the fall of 2019. Work stopped over winter but has been picked up again this spring. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of June.
