Calhoun's "phase two" of E-911 addressing and mapping is nearing completion, according to E-911 Director Gary Buchanan.
"It has been a labor intensive effort," he said.
When completed, all Calhoun residences that currently have a rural route and box number will have been assigned a new "city-type" physical address.
Calhoun, as it turns out, is ahead of the loop with most of the state's counties, although the plan has been on the board for a number of years.
The addresses must be approved by the U.S. Postal service before they can be used for mail delivery.
Once the Address Management office in Charleston approves the new addresses, residents will receive notification of their new address, says Buchanan.
"The project remains on schedule with the help and cooperation of county residents and local postal workers, who really assisted with the effort," he said.
