For the Linn County Leader

 A sidewalk improvement project that was scheduled to begin in July, but had been postponed, began Monday in Salisbury. The project to help ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), partially funded through the Transportation Alternatives Program, with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) providing the remaining funding, will improve sidewalks and other facilities in Salisbury, Keytesville and Chillicothe.

MoDOT has contracted with Ti-Zack Concrete, Inc. to complete the improvement project. By contract, all work must be complete on or before Oct. 1, according to a press release. If the project extends beyond that date, liquidated damages may be assessed.
