Major road project on St. Louis St. through Batesville begins Monday


Atlas Asphalt will start a milling and overlay project Monday beginning at the north end of the White River Bridge and going north to the intersection of White Drive and Saint Louis Street (or Highway 167).

Atlas Asphalt President Mark Lamberth said the milling and overlay crews will be working between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., adding that the project will take between two-to-three weeks to complete.

Lamberth said only one lane will be closed at a time, therefore traffic will have a continuous flow through the area.

Lamberth said the project will mill about two inches off the top of the current asphalt, and then overlay two inches of new asphalt.

If you travel Saint Louis Street in the described area, you will want to drive with extreme caution as men and equipment will be working. You should obey flagmen at all times.
