Big projects in DuBois this Summer
March 23, 2014
DuBOIS- A dog park is being added to the walkway, potholes will be filled and the W. Long Ave Dollar General could be demolished by June; Those are some of the plans for DuBois this summer.

The walkway continues to improve now with the addition of a dog park thanks to a $25,000 grant. The park will be a 1 acre, fenced in area with toys and obstacles for the dogs to interact with. Like the rest of the walkway, owners will be responsible for picking up after their dogs.

The Maple Ave. side of the walkway will be resurfaced this year. The maple avenue side of the walkway will not be paved. It will have a softer surface which may be easier for runners.

The potholes are a major problem across the state due to the harsh winter we've had. Now that spring is here the city of DuBois is beginning to assess what they can do to fix the streets. City manager Herm Suplizo said the roads have taken a beating and they will fix the potholes but they canít repave everything. He said they will be assessing the streets soon and will prioritize what streets need paving.

The Dollar General on W. Long Ave in DuBois may be demolished by June. The city is waiting on an environmental survey before moving forward on the demolition of the store which caught fire and is now full of mold.

Penndot will start street sweeping state roads the week of April 7th. The DuBois city council asks residents who live on a state road to have their sidewalks swept before street sweeping begins.
