A ribbon cutting ceremony and appreciation lunch will be held to celebrate the completion of the connector road at Industrial Park in Demopolis. The event will be held on Oct. 19 at 12 p.m.

The connector road project is meant to alleviate traffic in the area and has been an ongoing project for quite some time. At a Rotary Club meeting in September, Demopolis Mayor Woody Collins announced that the project had been completed.

The project was 25 years in the making and had been spearheaded by long-time Rotary Club member John Cox. The initial bid for the road project was $125,000, but when the city finally got around to the project, the bid price had jumped to $357,000.
