Jackson Board of Alderman approves upgrades for roads, park

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo (KBSI) – The City of Jackson is set to get some upgrades. The city’s Board of Alderman meeting on Monday came together and made some decisions for repairs that need done on the city roads, and different plans the city has for new projects.

The Jackson Board of Alderman gave way to a $350K round-a-bout project which will be the third round-a-bout installed in Jackson.

The asphalt pavement improvement program is a project the city does every year, looking at all the asphalt roads and try to maximize what maintenance needs to be done, and what repairs need to be done within the city.

“If there’s already damage in the road, overlaying doesn’t always fix the problem, you have to fix what’s underneath it.”

The park is utilizing some of the ARPA funds they received and chose to take care of the facilities that the city has.

“One of the first projects is going to be replacing that bathroom in the same location. And that’s what was discussed, getting the cite work, surveying, and engineering started on that project.”

The board of alderman meeting for the city is held every first and third Monday of the month, where projects like these are discussed regularly.
