Council members, business owners and representatives from government agencies gathered Tuesday morning to celebrate the long-awaited completion of “Phase 1” of Auburn Boulevard improvement work.
Business owners present for the ribbon-cutting ceremony were particularly glad for the completion of the project, and expressed hope for increased business now that new sidewalks are open, power lines are under-grounded and lanes are no longer closed.
“I’m glad it’s done,” said business owner Rocky Moffitt, whose 7440 Club took a hit during the road work outside his doors. “The construction actually has hurt my business during the daytime… but overall it looks great. I love the finished project.”
