Asphalt improvements began this week in downtown Houston.
The Houston City Council earlier approved a $41,600 bid for asphalt improvements in the community.
A proposal from Ozark Asphalt of West Plains was approved for about 800 tons of asphalt. A chip and seal application is planned for the city’s new storm shelter at First and Pine streets, as well as an Oak Hill Drive parking lot for the community’s bus barn. Wells Asphalt of Carthage is the contractor.
Streets that will receive attention:
*Third Street from Chestnut to Walnut.
*Main Street from U.S 63 to Second Street.
*Pine Street from Second to Third streets.
*Steffens Street from Second to Thirds streets.
*Mill Street from Second to Third streets.
*Chestnut Street from Fourth to Second streets.
The project is paid using funds from an eighth-cent sales tax.
