The $11.9M Black Pearl/East Carrollton Group A project began construction in August 2020. Hard Rock Construction, LLC continues to make significant progress, with completed sewer point repairs on Adams, Birch, Burdette, Fern, Hickory, Huso, Jeanette, Pearl, Plum, Short, and Zimpel streets. The contractor has also begun roadway excavation and concrete placement, with that work expected to continue throughout the project in the coming month. The project is expected to be completed in spring 2022.
