Beginning Monday, March 2, at 7 a.m., Watson Concrete Inc., contractor for City of Columbia Building Maintenance, plans to begin making repairs to the sidewalk of the Police Station at 600 E.

This project was originally scheduled for Feb. 24-March 4 but was rescheduled due to weather.

While repairs are being made to the sidewalk, the entrance to the Columbia Police Department, located at 600 E. Walnut St, will still be accessible to the public. Motorists and nonmotorized transportation users are urged to exercise extreme caution when in the work zone.
