The reopening of College Avenue in front of Alton Middle School is in sight according to the head of the City’s Public Works Department. The roadway has been closed since January as the sewer separation project fell behind schedule. Alton Public Works Director Bob Barnhart told the Big Z in a previous interview that the project was delayed by winter weather and other issues. He now says the plan is to  wrap up the work and reopen College Avenue by the end of this week.
