Lane shifts remain as Opus continues sewer construction
COLUMBIA - Opus continues to build a storm and sanitary sewer at the site of a future student housing complex.
The construction of the sewer will cause continued lane shifts along 7th Street, Cherry Street and Locust Street.
According to Opus, roads will reopen on December 5th when the sewer will be completed.
Previously, residents were concerned Columbia's infrastructure, specifically the sewer system, could not handle another major development downtown.
Opus still received approval from the Columbia City Council to build in May.
