DeSoto Main Street work to finally begin this year

(DeSoto) After several years of planning and engineering work, the STP project on the northern end of DeSoto Main Street will begin phase one this year. DeSoto City Manager Todd Melkus says they are certainly excited to bring some much-needed improvements to that end of the roadway.

Melkus says 80 percent of the cost will be covered by grant funding.

Phase one of the project will begin later this year. The planning for this project began in 2019.
