Jefferson Place and McKoy Street Repaving Begins Week of Monday, April 16

Update: The start date for this work has been delayed to Monday, April 16.

The impact

The City of Decatur has employed Blount Construction to re-surface several local streets as part of its annual street maintenance program. Jefferson Place from West College to Ansley Street and McKoy Street from its dead-end to West Benson Street are the first streets to be milled and repaved as a part of this year’s effort. Work is expected to start the week of April 9. (Now April 16, per update above.)
