FRANK WATSON PARKWAY IN HIGHLAND

 

It’s called the peripheral route.  It’s a multi-million dollar, multi-year road construction project in Highland.  The first part of it is now complete and was renamed the Frank Watson Parkway.  At last night's Highland City Council meeting, Mayor Joe Michaelis read an announcement renaming phase one of the peripheral route after the 51st District Senator who served in that office from 1983 to 2009.  While construction continues on the other parts of the road, phase one went from U.S. Highway 40 to Koepfli Lane.
