Work in Sheridan’s Washington Park, on Coffeen Avenue, as well as some other areas around town, is being done through the Army Corps of Engineers to repair damage to city levees.

Lane Thompson, Sheridan’s public works director, recently explained.

In addition to the park on Coffeen Avenue, Thompson said crews under contract to the Corps also are working or will be working at several other areas in Sheridan including the bridge on Sheridan Avenue and an area across from the hill slide at Kendrick Park.

Thompson said there were quite a few areas throughout the city’s levee system on Big Goose, Little Goose and Goose creek that were damaged during the event. He said work started about a month ago.
