Project 180 Update
Project 180 wraps up another construction project.
Starting Monday morning Walker from Kerr to 6th now runs both north and south.
That stretch had been one way only for years. The two-way traffic now links
Downtown to Midtown for commuters.
"They would park down Dean McGee. If you missed it, you'd have to circle around and it's making it a lot easier,"
said Kim Nixon of Hobby's Hoagies. She moved her business to the corner of 6th and Dean McGee four years ago and looks
forward to the change. So does Art Rutledge of the two month old Vice Spirits.
"I think it will be great with the way Midtown's developing. It will only make it easier for people to visit both areas,"
He adds that the new Walker will invite visitors both coming into and leaving downtown.
The change is also to encourage more pedestrian traffic. Project 180 focuses on re-aligning and upgrading our
roads around City Hall and the Civic Center.
Road construction with Project 180 won't start up again until this summer.
The project is planned to be complete next year.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says the nation must do more than just remember its fallen heroes on Memorial Day.
In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says the country must care for the loved ones the fallen leave behind. He says the country must also make sure that all veterans receive the care and benefits they have earned.
Obama says that, above all, the armed forces must have the support needed to carry out their missions at home and abroad.
In the Republican address, Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe thanks the nation for its prayers and support following Monday's deadly tornado in his home state. He recalls past natural and man-made disasters in Oklahoma and says that while the state was hard hit, "we're not knocked out."
