      More than $720,000 will go toward fixing pot holes in Albany.

      On Tuesday, in the Albany City Commission work session, commissioners voted to get parts of Stuart Avenue resurfaced.

      Before the the resurfacing can start, commissioners learned from the Public Works Department that they must first fix the base so the resurfacing will actually last longer.

      Bruce Maples, Director Engineering says, "about 9,500 vehicles a day travel on Stuart Avenue and at some point it's going to get to a point where it will be untravelable if we don't go ahead and do something proper to reconstruct the whole roadway."

      They hope to begin the project sometime this summer.

      It will cost more than $720,000.
