On the agenda for the City Commission’s regular meeting is a vote on the funding request for the U.S. 278 complete street design project. The city has been working on the project since 2014. It aims to improve U.S. 278 and includes a “road diet” that will reduce the five-lane road to three lanes between Sam’s Crossing and Ashton Place.
The city is asking for $80,000 for traffic light reconfiguration and design work in order to leverage additional construction grants, according to the agenda packet.
The city is expected to receive $1.9 million from the federal surface transportation reauthorization legislation in September but is requesting $80,000 now for the design work to be able to complete the project on schedule, Decaturish previously reported.
During the work session, the City Commission is set to discuss the tree ordinance, Christmas decorations and an extension of a moratorium on new vape shops.
The City Commission began at the April 28 meeting discussions on the Christmas tree that is reserved for the annual tree lighting and the possibility of using a different tree rather than the holly tree at the corner of South Avondale Road and Clarendon Avenue.
The full agendas can be found on the city’s website.
