Construction started today on the Staples Road (Texas 621) sidewalk project funded by the Community Development Block Grant program.
The $178,290 project is expected to take about 90 to 120 days to complete, depending on the weather. Manley Contracting was awarded the bid to build the 1,400 foot sidewalk from Durango to Tampico Streets along the east side of Staples Road and install new driveway entrances in that area.
Residents are asked to watch for heavy equipment, drive carefully in the work zone and obey flaggers directing traffic. For more information about the project, call Public Works at 393-8036.
