Barnes Mill Road has gotten a makeover!

Tinsley Asphalt Company of Tullahoma is about to complete a paving project there under a contract with the DeKalb County Highway Department.

Road Supervisor Danny Hale said 2.1 miles of Barnes Mill Road has been widened and repaved. The cost of the project is $404,000 funded from the local road department budget.

“We have widened the road to 19 feet and we are repaving the road. I wanted to do it last year but we didn’t have the funds at that time because we were paving the Corinth Church Road and Moores College Road. After the new budget rolled over and we had the money the contractors were tied up. Everything has finally come together, and we are getting it paved,” said Road Supervisor Hale.

“Tinsley usually gets the bid on our paving because we don’t have a paving machine and we have to contract it out. We have paved 2.1 miles of Barnes Mill Road. About one mile of the road in from Jefferson Road had already been paved (during a previous administration) but it was rough from there on out so we picked up the paving from there and went to the end of the road to Highway 288 (Belk Road) in the Antioch community,” said Road Supervisor Hale.

Cut the cake. Its time to celebrate!

Kudos to the students and staff at DeKalb County High School for recent academic growth.

Staff gathered in the school cafeteria Tuesday afternoon for the celebration with the cutting of a cake.

“We are celebrating DCHS being named a Level 4 out of 5 school in growth for the 2021-22 school year. This means our students had more than expected academic growth from the 2021 year to 2022. We are super proud of that because last year we were coming off of COVID with some students being in school with others being remote and the previous year when we were out of school from March going forward. We are really excited about that growth. We had exceptional growth in Algebra II and English 10 and I think that is what put us over the expected growth for the 2021-22 school year,” said Supervisor of Instruction Dr. Kathy Bryant.
