Information from WYSH Radio
The Clinton City Council is scheduled to receive an update tonight from City Manager Roger Houck on the status of the state project to replace the Lewallen Bridge connecting South Clinton and downtown Clinton on Highway 25W.
According to the city manager’s report included in the agenda for this evening’s meeting, Houck recently met with Tennessee Department of Transportation officials, who informed him that the project is still on schedule and that the design phase is nearing completion. Houck reported that TDOT has incorporated the various requests made by the city to be included in the design, such as lighting and bike lanes.
A plans review meeting is also set for next month, at which time city leaders could learn more about the expected timetable for the bridge project.
Tonight’s meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. (Monday, January 23) at Clinton City Hall.
It will be the last one at City Hall until March, as City Hall is undergoing renovations. Next month, meetings of city boards and committees as well as the City Council and the School Board will be moved to other locations.
