      Street improvement plan discussed at ATC meeting

      The Airport and Transportation Commission met at Kirksville City Hall on Tuesday to discuss the city's public works.

      The Airport and Transportation Commission met at Kirksville City Hall on Tuesday to discuss the city's public works.

      ATC members addressed the 2013 Traffic Count and the 5 Year Street Improvement Plan.

      They have already begun identifying streets that will be included in the street improvement plan. However, a full list won't be completed until spring of 2013.

      John Buckwalter, with the Public Works Department, tells KTVO they have been surveying streets already.

      "When we look at a street that's classified as a collector street, we'll look at about how many vehicles a day that street caries. We will probably place a higher priority on a street which is in poor condition that's carrying 3,000 vehicles a day over a street that's in poor condition that only carries 200 vehicles a day," Buckwalter said.

      About $800,000 of available funds for 2013 will be used for concrete pavement repair and asphalt overlay projects.
