Good news on paving front

It's only one project but a paving job on hold for lack of funds was recently put out for bid in Oak Park, IL. A stretch of East Avenue, a heavily trafficked suburban road, was slated for an overlay since 2007. Lack of funds, however, put the project on hold. But because of more than $600,000 in federal stimulus funding the job is slated to begin in spring 2010. Hopefully that's the first of many new paving projects. When you hear of any start-ups -- especially delayed projects that have been given the go-ahead -- in your market drop us a note. It will be great to track some good news for a change
