The unpaved alleyway between the Franklin Apartments and the Koehly Electric and Chillicothe Beauty Academy buildings has been closed since the end of last week, where it intersects with Clay Street. The Chillicothe Street Department tore out a section of the intersection, where the gravel way split the sidewalk that follows the westbound lane of Clay, starting last Thursday (Oct. 4). Over this past weekend, they connected the two sidewalk sections with a new stretch of concrete. This morning (Oct. 9), the Street Department poured concrete to again provide the alley with access onto Clay Street.
