Franklin Street update

DPW Ted Henderson reported that driveway accesses are being poured along Franklin St. from the Country Club to Pine Ridge Rd.

He also reported that the Pine Ridge and Country Club driveway intersections with Franklin St. would be opened Friday. Residents along that stretch of Franklin St. will be allowed to park on the street until the driveway accesses are cured.

Monday, workers will be tearing out concrete on Franklin St. from the Hillcrest Ave. to Brown St. intersections, weather permitting.

At that time, residents of Morningside, Hillcrest, and Parkview will need to exit the neighborhood on Pine Ridge. They will then be able to drive through the Country Club to Country Club Drive to access city streets.
