Work continues on Starke Street in Hamlet. During Wednesday’s town council meeting, Council President Dave Kesvormas shared an update from project engineer Lee Nagai. “They’re hoping to be finished with the road portion of this by Friday,” Kesvormas explained. “That’s what they’re hoping for, but we may have a delay with rain. I don’t know what their deal is. But North Starke Street looks really good.” Kesvormas said he’s very happy with the paving work done by Walsh & Kelly.
The main portion of Hamlet’s Starke Street rehabilitation project is expected to get underway in the next couple of weeks. Project engineer Lee Nagai told the town council Tuesday that he’s asked paving contractor Walsh & Kelly to wait until after this Friday to get to work. “Between school being out and whatnot, I thought it would be better,” he said. “I mean, it’s already late because of the weather, so we’ll just wait until school’s over and hopefully, they can get started either next week or the following week.”
Hamlet officials are still waiting for work to begin on the Starke Street rehabilitation project. As the first step, the town has been working with Starke County Surveyor Bill Crase to extend the culvert at Benninghoff Ditch.
The Hamlet Town Council is nearly ready to award quotes for over $200,000 in improvements to Starke Street. Plans call for the road to be rebuilt from Plymouth Street north to U.S. 30. The work will include drainage improvements and a new sidewalk along the west side of the road.
