TIGER Grant Project Manager Chuck Knowles gave an update on the project Friday.
Effective immediately, motorists using West Second Street between Shelby and Steele streets should be aware that the contractor has begun to demolish sidewalk and curb and construct storm drainage along this section of West Second Street.
"This section of West Second Street is currently still open to through traffic," Knowles said. "However, the available roadway will be narrower as this work takes place. At some point, this section of West Second Street will be closed to through traffic."
