A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at Booker High School on Oct. 21 for the Myrtle Street Improvement Project, marking the completion of the award-winning project. The highly-anticipated upgrades span from U.S. 41 all the way east to Tuttle Avenue, providing safe multimodal improvements for all residents but especially for students and teachers walking and bicycling to and from Booker High and Booker Middle Schools.
