Hamlet’s Railroad Street project is officially complete. Engineer Lee Nagai is pleased with how it turned out. “I think it’s where everyone is happy to know that it’ll be under-budget and ahead of schedule,” he says.
Railroad Street was resurfaced from Jefferson to Starke streets. The town hired Mark Milo Enterprises to do the work, with a bid of just under $194,000. Seventy-five percent of that cost was covered by a Community Crossings grant from the state.
Nagai feels the program has proven to be a good deal for the town. “The town did a great job in leveraging their funds to maximize the benefit afforded them by the Community Crossings grant,” he adds.
Nagai is hopeful that Hamlet can bring in more Community Crossings funding in the future, to continue making improvements like the Railroad and Starke street projects.
