Texas College community residents celebrated a major construction project in the area with a block party Sept. 1.

In a $1.57 million project, the city of Tyler replaced a drainage pipe with a box culvert, extended 26th Street past Tenneha Street to the Texas College campus and added sidewalks, street lighting and decorative retaining walls.

The Texas College Choir, Stampede Marching Band, Golden Girls Dance Team, twirlers, flag squad and cheer team performed.
