The Town of Ahoskie contacted The Wooten Company to perform an assessment of 33 miles of roadway in-town. The Wooten Company utilized a pavement rating system for low volume asphalt roads developed by the asphalt institute in Lexington, Kentucky. A preliminary engineering report provided detailed information for use in the development of a long term maintenance program that effectively communicates to the residents of the Town the manner in which their neighborhoods are affected. Following the report, the Town Council elected to move forward with a $1.8 million in funding by USDA in 2016 to rehabilitate a portion of the roadways. Construction of the recommended street and drainage improvements commenced in Fall 2016 and was completed in Spring 2017.
