In latter 2021, the Department of Transportation alerted the city and the county of Madison, that a re-paving project for Madison County is one of their initiatives for fiscal year 2023 – 2024.  The repaving initiative will consist of re-paving Highway 14, from Interstate 10, which turns into Range Avenue, intersecting at Millinor Street, ending at Highway 53 South, also known as Duval Avenue.  Central to the fiscal year 2023 – 2024 DOT’s re-paving project is a crucial upgrade of the waste water utility that is located underneath Range Avenue, as it intersects with Willie Claire-Copeland Street.  Although the Department of Transportation has not released its media version of the re-paving initiative, as it encompasses other upgrades, this media release is presented to enhance citizen’s awareness.  The upgrade of the almost 80-year-old waste water utility is critical for the City of Madison and the citizens that it serve.  The waste water utility is a major conduit for the movement of waste water in the southeastern corridor of the City of Madison. More information will be provided as the dates for the project are announced.
