STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - The Starkville Board of Aldermen accepted a bid from Simmon's Erosion Control, Inc. at Tuesday's regular meeting to do the Highway 12 sidewalk project.
Mayor Lynn Spruill said the project aims to build about 1,700 feet of sidewalk on Highway 12.
The biggest section contractors will tackle first is Avenue of the Patriots to Taylor Street, and then work on other smaller sections going east.
All of the work will be done on the north side of Highway 12.
Spruill said the city has $50,000 from a bond to contribute to earmarked funds for the project, bringing the total funds to about $279,000.
She hopes construction for the project will start before the end of this year since the city is experiencing dry weather.
