The first phase of the Avenue A project is nearing completion.

McPherson City Public Works Director Jeff Woodward says they plan to open the street up to through traffic as soon as the weather permits.

“All properties are accessible through the side streets,” Woodward said. “All concrete on phase one of Avenue A is complete and all of the joints are sealed.”

As for Wastewater Treatment Plant Road, Woodward reports that all driveways are now accessible up to Avenue A.

“We have a center section where all the concrete is placed, but the center section's not been sealed and the weather doesn't look conducive to do that in the next week to 10 days,” Woodward said. “As soon as the weather permits, we'll be able to seal that and open that section back up.”

Woodward adds the only inconvenience for that particular section of the road should be to Wastewater Treatment Plant employees.
