Columbia City Council votes on major issues

The Columbia City Council voted on two major issues — Providence Road construction and improvements to the J.W. “Blind” Boone home — at its meeting Monday evening.

The council voted to approve Option 8, but with amendments.

The option is similar to the most popular choice by residents, which was Option 9. In Option 8, crews will remove the turn signal at Rollins Road and Providence, but add a light to the intersections of Turner Avenue and Providence and Burnam Road and Providence.

The project will also expand the right-turn lane on Providence to Brandon Road. A sidewalks would be added from Birch to Providence.

The original proposal included widening Birch Street, but the council voted to take that option out Monday night.

The estimated cost of the project is nearly $2 million.

Council members will also voted to authorize improvements to the J.W. “Blind” Boone Home.

The home on N. 4th Street will receive $326,000 in interior and exterior upgrades.
