Weather delays downtown enhancement project

Wet weather is delaying construction of a downtown enhancement project in Moultrie.     

Phase III of the Streetscape project was scheduled to begin today. Crews will remove the sidewalk along the North side of 2nd Avenue, repave it, and install benches and lighting.  They did some preliminary work over the weekend anticipating the rain.  

"They should be in immediately after the rain has ceased with demolition of the existing walk and then they'll start placing the new walk back in place," said City Engineer Roger Ruis.        

The $750,000 project is funded through a federal grant. It should be finished towards the end of the year.
