Koke Mill Road Project
Alderman Donelan is working with City leaders for improvements to Koke Mill Road. The intersection of Washington Street and Koke Mill Road floods during even minor rain events. This is a safety hazard for residents for which engineering and planning have been done, and the next phases are moving forward.
