Chris Hollaway, a Jefferson City resident, walks his dog at McKay park every day and has noticed that there have already been a lot of changes to the park.
“Over the last couple of years or so, they have added larger rock to prevent erosion on the bank,” Hollaway said. “They have added about half a mile of trail, and they cut out the old asphalt and repaired it. There were some really bad spots, so they fixed it.”
Hollaway did not know of any future construction for the park, or the surrounding areas. This was the same for the majority of the Jefferson City residents I spoke to. No one knew about the construction.
However, Holladay was not too concerned about the future construction or the potential smell.
“We all pay for progress, you know, if we want something to get done, we have to make a mess before we progress, so I’m okay with it. It's going to be temporary, I hope,” Holladay said.
Holladay does not plan to stop going to the park and will continue to walk his dog.
