Construction of Sedalia arch begins


Phase three of the Historic Streetscape Project in downtown Sedalia was well on its way Wednesday with the construction of the arch located at Ohio Avenue and Broadway Boulevard. Chris Ford, an employee of Kat Excavation and Construction, Inc., of Bates City, uses a drill to install Symons forms on the west column that will support the arch. Terry Parker, also an employee of Kat, brings additional material to the work site. The framework for the arch should be completed by the end of next week, the men said.

Matt Harris, senior engineer technician for Sedalia Public Works, said the whole project, including the street, sidewalks and arch was slated to be finished by Nov. 3.
