Auburn roads will get some much-needed attention this spring as the city begins its road surfacing and reclamation programs this week. More than two dozen projects will kick off Tuesday with work on Old Danville Road, which is earmarked for reclamation from Danville Corner Road to South Main Street. Reclamation projects involve grinding up the existing pavement and gravel, grading and compacting the remaining surface and then paving. Resurfacing projects require only a layer of pavement on top of the existing pavement.
