Coronavirus or no virus, the bread-and-butter work of city administration continues. The Albany City Council last week approved a contract to rebuild Lochner Road to help the SnoTemp company to expand its cold-storage operation and eventually add jobs.
Albany’s project to replace two old culverts on Belmont Avenue S.W. looks like it’s almost finished. The road-closure signs were in some disarray on Sunday, perhaps shoved around by high winds. (And it wasn’t completely clear why the street was still closed to traffic as the pavement on the new crossing looked complete.)
