A groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday to mark the beginning of the 10th Street Road Improvement Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Project. This project will mill and overlay the entire street surface on 10th Street between Camden and Gillham Streets. It will also include concrete repair or replacement of intersections along with ADA sidewalk ramps and replacement of all curb and gutter and driveway entrances.
The total cost of the project is $730,000 with the CDBG grant funding $330,000, and the city funding the remaining $400,000. According to Chuck Shively, Public Works Director, the project will get underway immediately. “Jeff Graham Construction is the contractor for this project. It has to be finished by the end of the year, so completion will be late this fall,” said Shively.
