Construction is underway on a project to improve sidewalks in town. The first new sidewalks are being built between Town Hall and Red River High School on East Carroll Street.

Town Council at its regular Monday night meeting approved a recommendation from the Town Engineer Brad Graff to award the sidewalk bid to Mack Henry Lewis.

Construction worker Leonard Lewis this week was directing traffic around construction equipment removing the old sidewalk in front of several homes. And
Town Clerk Stephanie Babers confirmed for The Journal that the construction on East Carroll Street is the first of the sidewalk improvements that are being made.

Mayor Johnny Cox described the improvements as being “very much needed.” Cox told The Journal “we have allocated $10,000 to make sidewalks smooth.”

Concrete for the new sidewalk was poured Thursday.
