Work began Thursday on hard-topping the roads to the new Q.V. Sykes Baseball Complex.
The new ball field is scheduled to open Apr. 19. Lauderdale County engineer Neal Carson said there will be good access.
"It will be ready to roll April the 19th," said Carson. "I can't guarantee you it will all be paved, but it will be hard surface access that anyone can go down there with."
First on the list is the road to the ball field, then widening the road into the complex and repaving the old Lover's Lane Road, now called G.V. Sykes Lane.
