Jonesborough Hopes to Finish Road Work This Week
The town of Jonesborough plans to be finished with downtown road work in the historic district. They hope the streetscape improvement project will be ready for showcase during the 42nd annual Jonesborough Days and Nights celebration that begins Friday. Many of the festivalís most popular activities will be concentrated in that area. Town Operations Manager Craig Ford says town work crews and prisoners from the Carter County Work Camp will work in shifts to install new granite curbs and brick sidewalks from Boone Street to Courthouse Square. The goal is to complete as much of the new sidewalk as possible prior to the festival so work crews will remain in the area until the minute. Construction will be suspended for the duration of the three-day festival. The water distribution portion of the project has been completed in the downtown district but Johnson City Power crews will continue work for several months to install new street lights and connect downtown homes and businesses to the updated underground power system. Electrical construction is also expected to be suspended throughout the Jonesborough Days celebration. The Power Board says work crews will be on Main Street between Cherokee Street and First Avenue throughout the week closing both lanes of Main Street and detouring traffic onto Second Avenue. (bg)
