Board of works rules against police union

Drainage project for Armstrong Bend set for next week


NEW ALBANY — Armstrong Bend to close for construction

After a group of residents complained about the condition of the road last week, the New Albany Stormwater Department is moving ahead with a project to repair a portion of Armstrong Bend.

Residents fear the road is in danger of collapsing due to deterioration caused by poor drainage. The board of works agreed Tuesday to shut down the road one day next week for culvert work in hopes of alleviating some of the drainage problems.

The project was estimated to cost about $17,000, and the road closure will be scheduled with the residents who live in the area so they can help determine the best day.

The work is expected to take a few days, but the road will only be closed for one day.

City officials said they also plan to investigate whether a new portion of roadway should be built in the area in question to widen the span.
