The second phase of the East McCarty Street improvement project has begun, but some residents along the corridor are complaining about inconveniences and damages caused by the work.

The McCarty Street corridor project is a $3.5 million project and is a jointly funded City of Jefferson/Cole County sales tax project. The project began Oct. 17 and must be completed by Dec. 4 of this year.
