May 26, 2011 - The stretch of Houston Street between Cedar and Sycamore Streets has been closed since middle May and will remain closed until the middle part of June as the city crew works on repairing a section of roadway that runs over a creek, which was previously very bumpy for drivers, and repaves the entire section - from U.S. Highway 69 to Cedar - with asphalt. Assistant City Administrator Butch Henderson reported this work is all part of the grant work that is set to be completed by Friday, June 17, and that workers are on target for that date. Before, the creek crossing was two large culverts (like the one pictured above) that were paved over, which created a large, rough hump over that section that caused area drivers to avoid using Houston Street when they could. The culverts have now been removed and the crossing will be an actual bridge once the project is completed. - Betsy Blevins staff photo
