COLUMBUS, KS.--- Work on the city streets in Columbus should be wrapping up next month. Construction has been underway since June, beginning at the intersection of Maple and High School. Once finished, the intersections at the roads being worked on will be in compliance with the American's with Disabilities Act. City workers say while there are some inconveniences associated with the project, there have been substantial savings for the tax payers.
"The city saved $28,000 plus, before the contractors started their jobs that they already have done. In hind sight, we'll have to look at whether we do that again or not," said Jim Burton, Columbus City Superintendent.
Work on the intersections and roads is expected to be completed by the middle of next month.
