QUINCY (WGEM) -- Quincy officials are laying out their plans for the next phase of road construction after the city council approved funding last night.

Engineering and Utilities Director, Jeffrey Conte said the $8-million approved last night will focus on rebuilding six streets from water mains to sewers, depending on their conditions.

"And then replacing the streets basically from sidewalk to sidewalk. It'll be basically a brand new street and should get another 50-year life out of the improvements," Conte said.

He said these improvements will provide safer streets.

"We have a lot of projects that need to be done and we don't have enough money to do all the projects. This $8-million is certainly going to help us get ahead, but we're still far behind," Conte said.

Conte said the project should start at the end of March, with weather permitting, should be done by Thanksgiving.

He said phase 3 will start sometime this summer and might not be completed until Spring of 2022.

The six locations will be

  • Adams 8th to 10th
  • Kentucky 2nd to 3rd
  • Washington 20th to 24th and 23rd Street -Washington to Ohio
  • Holford Drive
  • 22nd - Oak to Chestnut
  • Hamann Lane 12th to 18th
