The second phase of the Front Street Improvement Project starts this week. Crews will begin demolition in the 300 block of Front Street (between Grace and Walnut Streets) on Wednesday September 21, will pave the Grace Street intersection on Thursday, and plan to re-open Grace Street to traffic on Friday, September 23.
In the 200 block (between Chestnut and Grace Streets) the installation of underground water, sewer and stormwater infrastructure is complete and crews are currently removing old and pouring new sidewalks, laying brick pavers and installing streetscape elements such as benches and lighting. The work in this block is scheduled for substantial completion by October 7 and will re-open to full vehicle access shortly after.
The entire $3.5 million, two-block improvement project, which began back in April, is slated for completion in November.
