The Washington City Council approved preliminary plans for a street construction project for this year. South 12th Avenue from East Fillmore Street to East Tyler Street will be paved as well as South 12th from 90 feet west of the right of way of South 10th Avenue to South 12th Avenue. The street will be paved with a curb and gutter, which councilman Bob Shepherd stated should help drainage issues in the area. Also, sidewalks will be installed. City Administrator Brent Hinson advised that a neighborhood meeting will be held regarding the project.
According to the timeline, the project is expected to begin in early July and be finished by the end of September.
