Traffic along several Jackson streets will be affected as the city prepares to make asphalt improvements, according to a news release issued by the city. Repairs are scheduled to begin at 7 a.m., Wednesday, Oct. 17. Roadway improvements will be made along Old Cape Road, North Oak Hill Road, Kidron Street, Shalom Street, Ridge Road and Stoneyledge Drive. The project will also include two new raised crosswalks in the city park and two new drives in Russell Heights Cemetery.

Affected roads will be restricted to one-lane traffic between the hours of 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. Signs will be posted to notify motorists of work in these areas.
