MLK project will be explained during informational meeting

City of San Angelo

The City of San Angelo’s Engineering Services Division is hosting a free informal public meeting about street and sidewalk improvements along Martin Luther King Drive at 6:30 p.m. June 30, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 301 W. 17th St.

The meeting is to inform residents and businesses along the MLK Transportation Enhancement/Infrastructure Rehabilitation project. The meeting will include discussion on rebuilding MLK, replacing water and sewer mains and adding sidewalks and bicycle lanes. Officials from the City will give details and answer questions about the project and each of the areas to be rehabilitated and constructed along MLK.

Martin Luther King Drive will be the first street rebuilt as a part of a 10-year, $80 million effort to reconstruct the city’s most compromised roadways. Construction on MLK from Loop 306 to 29th Street is scheduled for October through April 2018.

The first of three construction phases on Bell Street from Rio Concho Drive to Harris Avenue is scheduled for March through August 2018.
