North Jefferson Street Project Just About Completed

The renovation project on North Jefferson Street (Hwy. 14 and Bus. Rte. 5) is just about complete. With all the new storm drains, sidewalks and guttering in place, pavers began resurfacing the roadway last Wednesday. On Tuesday of this week, MoDOT striped the roadway and painted arrows in the center turn lane, marked crosswalks. With the renovation, North Jefferson has a center turn lane from NW 12th Ave. to just north of the square. With the addition of the center turn lane, all parking on the street is eliminated, including the west side of the Ava High School.
