City of Murfreesboro Considering Crosswalks Around Courthouse

The city of Murfreesboro continues to make street improvements and is also planning to apply for another street aid grant next year. An agreement to postpone the widening of South School Street has been accepted until all parties: Murfreesboro Hardware and the City, have time to build the shoulders of the road before paving. Several streets have been paved during this year’s budget, with work delayed on Hickory Street until some foundation work can be completed. Mayor Rodney Fagan says he has spoken with the state highway department about crosswalks between Hawkins and Diamond Inn on East Main Street and on North Washington between the Courthouse and Pike County Clerk’s Office. The third crosswalk would be placed on South Washington between Caddo Antiques and the vacant building on the West side of the street. The city could place crosswalks on East Main with no paperwork or restrictions from the highway department. However to place crosswalks at either of the other two locations, flashing lights would be required to be installed at a cost of approximately $4,000 each. The council agree to place crosswalks on East Main Street and table a decision on the other two crosswalk locations.
