Residents Speak Up About Columbia Road Expansion Concerns

Residents who could be impacted by the Columbia road expansion project expressed their concerns at this evening's City Council meeting. The project would widen three sections of the road in three phases, the first was bid last week and is expected to start next year.

Residents who could be impacted by the Columbia road expansion project expressed their concerns at this evening's City Council meeting. The project would widen three sections of the road in three phases, the first was bid last week and is expected to start next year.

The residents who spoke tonight may not be impacted until the third phase of the project in 2020 but they say it's coming sooner than you think, and they want the city to take action to prevent it now. City Engineer Al Grasser says once the city gets to phase three, they'll complete noise analyses and other studies to determine what exactly needs to be done. Melanie Orlins has more.
