Sidewalks along Highway-5 in Laurie are on the way after city officials, this week, give approval of a MoDOT grant. According to Mayor Allen Kimberling, the approval was given despite some opposition to the project.
The engineering phase is finished with the plan to put in about five miles of sidewalk plus down O-road. Work on the project should start by the fall. The city share of the project comes in right about $28-thousand.
