The city of Roswell has announced that work on South Atkinson Avenue between East Alameda and East McGaffey streets was expected to resume this week.

An unexpected delay occurred after a hot-mix plant was struck by lightning during the weekend. The contractor had been scheduled to start paving of the milled areas of that portion of Atkinson Avenue on Monday.

With work resuming, the contractor may work on Saturday to get more paving done, the city stated.

The plan is to have the paving completed before school starts Aug. 7 so that Nancy Lopez Elementary School at Atkinson and East Bland Street will not be impacted.
