Several weeks of on and off rain have left the South Main Street construction zone a muddy mess. As temperatures fell into the 40’s on Wednesday, a light misty rain cast the city into a gray and foggy winter scene.
Construction on South Main Street began in the early summer of 2018, and it’s part of the Downtown Jasper Beautification Project.
Workers have been burying overhead electric, telephone, and cable TV lines, and once that phase is complete, Main Street will receive a freshly paved surface.
Meanwhile, Jasper residents have had to deal with detours to reach destinations in areas south of the downtown area.
