674 Construction Crew is Packing Up and Going Home

SUN CITY CENTER - The State Road 674 resurfacing project through Sun City Center appears to finally be nearing an end.

The $3.3 million project was hampered by heavy rains early in the summer causing residents to endure changes in lane alignment and, worst of all, uneven pavement between the lanes.

"All paving should be finished by end of week," said Michael Morgan of Ajax Paving Industries, Inc. "People shouldn’t see us after that. We still need to do final striping but we’ll do that at night so that shouldn’t affect the public." According to Morgan, the pavement requires 14 days to cure before striping can begin.

The total scope of the project included resurfacing, widening and what the Department of Transportation refers to as "signalization." The project was to have run for 59 days.

It's Time to Plan for the 2003 Southshore Business Expo

The 2003 SouthShore Business Expo will be held on Oct. 30 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Community Hall on South Pebble Beach Blvd.

The event, presented by the Sun City Center Chamber of Commerce, offers free admission and more than 100 businesses showcasing their products and services.

Flu, pneumonia and tetanus shots will also be available. Pre-registration for the shots is available at the SCC SunTrust Bank.

Additionally, there will be free antique appraisals from Burchard Galleries, a Bloodmobile van and a van from the Eye Associates. Food concessions will be provided by the Chamber Ambassadors and Sun City Center service organizations.
