NEW ALBANY —
DEPAUW AVENUE TO GET SIDEWALK WORK
The board also approved including sidewalk repairs along Depauw Avenue into the city’s paving plan for this year.
The change order didn’t require additional funding, as engineers said money had been earmarked for sidewalk repairs pending the identification of streets needing the work.
The New Albany City Council appropriated $2 million this year for paving. Officials said areas of the sidewalks along Depauw Avenue are in severe disrepair, and that is why the street was included in the resurfacing campaign.
The bulk of the $2 million appropriation will be used for paving roads.
