Akins Excavating Inc. was awarded the Tunnel Hill Sanitary Sewer Extension Project at a low bid for $63,097 during a recent meeting of the Harlan County Fiscal Court.
Harlan County Engineer Leo Miller said with the completion of this sewer project all of Rosspoint and Tunnel Hill, along with the upgrading of the pump station at the Harlan County High School athletic complex will be completed.
“The project will begin at the governor’s discretion,” said Miller. “The particular project is just a little add-on at Tunnel Hill. It will finish sewer all the way to Rosspoint on both sides of the road.”
