Workers are in the process of upgrading sidewalks and access ramps to make them compliant with the American with Disability Act guidelines. Here workers do concrete work on the southwest corner of Shawnee and Elm Streets on Oct. 5. The work is made possible, in part, by a federal Community Development Block Grant. The city will spend $20,000 on the project. The grant will fund another $100,000 in sidewalk work.
