LAKE CITY — With one last chance to voice their concerns about the realignment of U.S. Highway 61, residents and the city council in Lake City came out to support the plan to realign the highway to three lanes.

By a 6-1 vote — Council Member Cindy McGrath voted no — the council approved municipal consent of the final layout of the U.S. 61 reconstruction project. The project will change the highway from four lanes to three, one lane in each direction plus a turn lane, for the 1.7-mile stretch from about Elm Street to Central Point Road.
