Employees of Metro Asphalt of Independence paved Thornton Street and West North Main last Friday as part of the Downtown Revitalization Project. With the overlays complete, the project is now more than 90 percent finished.
The total cost of the project is more than $400,000. The city of Richmond will contribute more than $100,000 in cash and labor. The rest of the project is paid for by grants. City Administrator Rick Childers said parts of the downtown will be shut down only one more time for pavement marking. (Photo by JoEllen Black/The Daily News)
