About 2-million dollars of street work will occur in Newton this spring and summer. The City’s Public Works Director, Jody Rhone, says the City issued a Road Use Revenue Bond to pay for the improvements.

The downtown street improvements will occur on the 100-blocks of East and West 2nd Streets South, and East and West 3rd Streets South. Rhone says City crews have been filling potholes that have developed from the freeze and thaw cycles over the past few months. Residents are encouraged to let them know if there’s a bad one that needs to be filled.
