Preparations for asphalt work on a major street in Houston will begin this week, city officials said.
A new asphalt overlay is planned for First Street. Advance preparations call for milling – removing a layer of the current street – this week. The paving will occur this Saturday.
Pace Construction of West Plains is the contractor for the project.
City Administrator Larry Sutton said motorists may want to avoid the street while the work is under way.
