Oneonta construction projects underway



Umberto Hernandez installs four-way lettering to the city of Oneonta’s new decorative stop signs. The new signs were installed earlier this week by the city’s street department. Scheduled to be installed later are new pavers – in a checkerboard pattern – and overhead stop signs at each intersection along Main Street. A separate sidewalk construction project (also pictured) has begun along Ala 75. Powe General Contractors of Hanceville is extending sidewalks from Oneonta Church of Christ one-half mile to the Oneonta City School campus. Both projects are being paid for with grant monies. – Rob Rice
