Around 50 Town and Country city leaders and residents gathered at on Thursday afternoon for the ceremonial ground breaking for the Clayton Road resurfacing and trail project.
The ceremony marked the beginning of Phase 1 of the three-phase project to repave Clayton Road from Hwy 141 to the city limits near Bopp Road. The project also includes creating a multi-use pedestrian trail on the north side of Clayton Road and installing a pedestrian walkway on the existing bridge over Hwy 141 which will connect the sidewalk on the north side of Clayton Road at Old Woods Mill Road to the intersection at Clayton Road and Woods Mill Road.
The project is scheduled to be completed by Fall of 2012.
“Today represents a major milestone in a community project that will make Town and Country a better place,” said Mayor Jon Dalton at Thursday's groundbreaking ceremony. “This project was started as part of the 1998 master parks and trails plan that will bring our city together and enhance our already deep sense of community in much the same way that a family turns a house into a home.”
