Sinking asphalt to be repaired on Sophia Avenue

March 30, 1995

Westminster and Carroll County governments hope a joint project will end about 20 years of sinking asphalt on Sophia Avenue near Westminster.

City government will manage a $286,600 project to replace a sewer main, add storm drains and repair the street. The county will contribute $80,700 for the storm drain and road repair. The project will extend a short distance south on Fairfield Avenue from the intersection of Sophia.

Thomas B. Beyard, city public works director, said it will start as soon as the contractor, J & H Construction Co. Inc., can begin. The project will take about four months.
