Recently, Mansfield city workers made a temporary sidewalk crossing near the school. However, a more permanent solution was implemented over the last few days.
That area located at the intersection of Grove Street and Huntington Avenue had become a flood prone area due to a culvert being blocked by tree roots and debris.
Mansfield Mayor Buddy Black arranged for Butch Martin, owner of Butch’s Concrete, to make the repairs. Mayor Black admitted this area was dangerous when heavy rains caused standing water across the highway and that it was a priority for him to get repaired.
The project will be completed just in time for students following the week-long spring break.
