Downtown Project (No. 14) Coming to happy conclusion

2013-09-13 - From 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. After a mid-point nightmare Columbia/Adair Utility District (CAUD) now sees a happy conclusion to the Downtown Project. Columbia's Stotts Construction Company, above at work on Paull Street earlier this week, is getting accolades from rescuing the project after it was abandoned by the firm which won the original contract. At the Thursday, September 12, 2013 meeting of the CAUD board, Consulting Engineer David Bowles said that the project should be wrapped up completely in about 3 weeks. The Paull Street project had been the most challenging, faced with old Columbia Utilities lines laid with almost no logical pattern for decades before merger. Stotts Construction was praised for minimizing interruptions to daily travel during the entire project. The school bus was allowed passage at all times and Adair County Public Library access was limited to the Greensburg Street entrance for just one day. CM has mostly good news, on balance to report from the meeting.
