Gateway to Downtown Sedalia is set


The gateway to Historic Downtown Sedalia is set in place early Monday morning by workers from Dowell Construction. The 47-foot wide by 27-foot tall structure is set to have “Sedalia Historic District” in lettering placed on the metal bridge later this week. The gateway will also be lit with lights, which can be adjusted to different colors. The structure is located at Broadway Boulevard and Ohio Avenue.

A crane from W and M Welding lowers the steel gateway into position at Broadway Boulevard and Ohio Avenue on Monday morning. Once workers started, it took less than a half hour to set the structure atop the concrete posts. Senior Engineering Technician for the City of Sedalia Matt Harris said the project appears to be ahead of schedule and should be finished by the Nov. 3 completion date. Harris said the businesses along Ohio in the construction area had been extremely patient during the construction project, which began in early August.
