CONYERS — Portions of 27 streets and roads within the city limits of Conyers will be resurfaced following a vote by the Conyers City Council.

The council unanimously approved a contract with ShepCo Paving Inc. for $1,888,800 for the repaving work that will cover a total of 5.75 miles of asphalt resurfacing. The contract calls for the job to be completed within five months from the notice to proceed.
