MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A busy street through Midtown Memphis has been repaved.

Now, neighbors want to know when it will be fully painted.

Cooper Street was resurfaced between Overton Square and Cooper-Young late last year with a new center turn lane and bike lanes, but the road is only partially painted. Neighbors say the confusion is causing people to drive in the wrong lanes.

A concrete median in front of the Hattiloo Theatre still isn’t marked to be visible at night.

Last December, a city spokesperson said a contractor should be finished by early spring.

Thursday, the city said they are working to “re-mobilize” the contractor to finish the job and add reflectors to that median.
