“We’re about 90 percent complete,” Fowler said at last Tuesday’s Cadiz City Council meeting. “The biggest part of what’s left is repaving.”
As of last week, part of the walking trail near Line Street and Depot Street remained unpaved, but Fowler told the city council that it would be repaved in short order.
The second phase of the project, which aims to replace old and small sewer pipes with newer, larger ones, goes from the intersection of Line Street and Depot Street to Genesis Express. Fowler said that although the second phase was approved in February, the spring storms and the fact that crews have hit limestone from time to time have caused some delays.
In the first phase, which went from Spring Street to Genesis Express, 3,000 feet worth of 12-inch and 16-inch pipes were replaced with 18-inch pipes. The phase was completed in April 2010.
Fowler said that the city hasn’t received funding for the third phase, which will go from Line Street and Depot Street to the five-way intersection near the Trigg County Schools, so no start date can be given.
