An eight-month construction project begins Monday on one of downtown Kirksville’s busiest streets. The “Franklin Streetscape Project,” in downtown Kirksville is projected to be completed by early next summer.
City Engineer Ed Ieans said the project is a joint effort between Truman State University and the City of Kirksville as a downtown beautification project.
This year Truman State University will celebrate its 100th year in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association – which will also be its last. Truman State is leaving the MIAA to join the Great Lakes Valley Conference.
