PLAIN CITY -- Pioneer Road near Pioneer Park will be widened as part of Phase 2 of the Pioneer Park development and will be done when the parking lot at the park is paved.
Mayor Jay Jenkins said if the road were not widened to meet the park, a strip of property would be left that could be a safety hazard. He added that the city also would have to keep the weeds down there.
Council members approved up to $15,000 to be used to widen the road.
Councilman Bruce Higley said, "We need to address it now because they will be paving in a couple of weeks."
