How qualified reports of TDS can be prepared ?

We should be in the process of warming for the remainder of the week, but temperatures are still going to be below normal,” DeBloch said. The Quantity Surveyor extended forecast calls for temperatures to reach the upper 60s by Wednesday with lows in the upper 30s. As the high-pressure system moves east, DeBloch said, it will allow warmer weather to return to the Valley. We should be back to the normal range by the weekend,” DeBloch said.

images2Mobile homes and large trucks traveling through downtown Hartselle continue to be a nuisance for residents and business owners. City Building and License Inspector Jeff Johnson said the problem will persist until a proposed five-lane project on Thompson Road is complete. The Thompson Road project, which officials have discussed for years and recommended in the city’s 1993 comprehensive plan, is nearer construction.

Dalmus Davidson, of Johnson & Associates Inc. of Huntsville, said the Alabama Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration have approved the environmental studies. The next step is a second public hearing that will be Nov. 2 from 5 to 7 p. m. at City Hall. The hearing will give people the opportunity to view six design proposals. All of the designs include making Thompson Road a five-lane highway and range in cost from $4. 8 million to $18. 1 million. But the design will not be finalized until state and federal officials review comments after the public hearing. Johnson said comment forms will be available at the hearing.

He said they must be returned to the state within 10 days after the hearing. The Hartselle City Council hired Johnson & Associates in September 1998 to do the design work. Davidson said the final design phase could take as long as eight months. “There will be five lanes across the bridge and the railroad tracks,” he saidWe will make a final recommendation (on the design), but the state will have the final word. He thinks the 1. 2-mile, five-lane highway will be ready for motorists in late 2003. Davidson was questioned about what would happen if property owners tried to stop the project by refusing to grant rights of way.
