Sidewalk Beautification Project
Crews are steadily working to complete the downtown sidewalk project.
It is a beautification project that will remove concrete sidewalks and replace them with brick pavers.
One of the main goals of the project is to put it in compliance with the American Disabilities Act.
The new sidewalks meet criteria that ensure it is safe for anyone with a disability.
This side of the sidewalk is taking slightly longer than the other side because of the large amount of businesses on this side of the road.
"We just appreciate the business owners working with us. Some of these drives we're having to work on and close them. Contractors are doing a great job coordinating that with these business owners and we haven't had any problems so far and don't anticipate to have any problems...been good to work with," said Jody Solomon, project engineer.
The project is on budget and is scheduled to be completed by the end of August.
