COLUMBIA — The Public Works Department is holding a public informational meeting on Wednesday concerning the third and last phase of sidewalk rehabilitation for an area of east-central Columbia.
The projects under discussion include replacing portions of sidewalks along Broadway, Bass Avenue, and Windsor, Melbourne, Ripley, Locust, Waugh and William streets.
Phases I and II included the replacement of sidewalks along College Avenue, Broadway, and Paquin, Anthony and Walnut streets, Public Works Department spokeswoman Jill Stedem said.
Phase III of the project will be funded by the Community Development Block Grant. The cost of this project is budgeted at $307,513.
Stedem said the purpose of the informational meeting is to show diagrams and take public comment before the project goes to the Columbia City Council for a public hearing later this spring.
Stedem said Phase I and Phase II were completed in 2009 and 2010, respectively, and were also funded by the grant. She said the first two phases cost $466,022.
The meeting will be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Wednesday in Conference Room 1A of the Daniel Boone City Building, 701 E. Broadway.
