Streetscape Project
Streetscape work has been awarded to Milestone Contractors, and preparations are being made for construction. Work is expected to be completed over two construction seasons, as follows:
  • 2015: In August 2015, streetscape work will begin. The initial phase will include Washington Street (north of Main Street) and Franklin Street (east of Washington Street). It is expected that the streetscape work along this corridor will be completed by November of 2015.
  • 2016: In Spring 2016, the contractor will continue the streetscape improvements in the balance of the downtown including work on Franklin, Market, Main and South Washington Streets. Final repaving of the streets is scheduled for late 2016, although it is possible it could take until early 2017.
