Columbus to Pave Three Miles of City Streets

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) -- More than three miles of Columbus streets will be paved this fall.

The City Council tonight approved spending $1 million on projects ranging from a busy mall intersection to major thoroughfares like 7th Street and 14th Avenue North to quiet neighborhood streets.

One of the biggest projects is Ridge Road from Military to Forest Glen.

The money is part of more than $3 million in bonds issued three years ago for street and drainage work and follows almost seven miles of paving work last year.

This year's list is heavy on projects on the Northside and east of Military Road but includes few projects on the city's Southside. Councilmen compiled the list working with City Engineer Kevin Stafford.

The Farmer's Market, Trotter Convention Center and some downtown parking lots also will be paved.
