Jefferson City and Cole County officials broke ground Thursday to mark the start of construction on the East McCarty Street project.

David Bange, engineering division director, said the project — which will include a three-lane roadway, new curbs and gutters, new sidewalks and a new signal at Eastland and McCarty Street — is expected to be completed by the end of November 2012.
