Next Phase of Riverside Drive Reconstruction Begins

With phase one of reconstruction complete on Riverside Drive, the 3.1 million dollar phase two of the project began on Riverside Drive from Beethoven Street to the Johnson City line.

This last phase will complete the first full reconstruction on the road.

Phase two is scheduled to be complete by the fall and the one mile stretch of work will provide new water, sewer, and sanitary lines.

"One of the things that really frustrates me to no end is when I see a street milled and paved in one year and then the following year a section of it is dug up to fix a broken water or sewer line. So if we are going to invest this money, we need to do it the right way and put the street and the water and sewer and sanitary lines on the same time schedule," said Mayor David.

The city is bonding to pay for phase two of the reconstruction.

One traffic lane will be open and motorists can expect some delays and obey the construction signs in the area.
