A new sidewalk project is set to begin in Camdenton next week. The East Highway 54 Sidewalk TAPS Project was funded by MoDOT in 2015 with all of the right of ways and temporary easements being acquired last year. The city also received both state and federal grants for the project, totaling over $414,000. The bid went to the same contractor that did the recent Parkway sidewalk project in Osage Beach, Hessling Construction. Their bid was around $80,000 less than what the city had budgeted.
