The Main Street Streetscape Redevelopment project that began with shovels in the ground on September 24th is nearing completion.
It takes significant time and effort to remove and replace underground infrastructure, and despite some minor delays due to weather and obstacles, the project has remained on-track. Phase I of the project should be completed in approximately two weeks time (weather permitting).
Here's the latest:
➡️ All underground water and sewer pipes have been removed and replaced.
➡️ Water testing has been completed, and temporary waterlines have been removed.
➡️ 4 bump curbs have been completed
➡️ Type 2 gravel placement has been completed, with type 1 gravel to be put down next week.
➡️ After type 1 gravel is in place, paving commences and, weather permitting, this phase of the project is complete.
Phase II of the redevelopment will get underway next spring. This phase involves installing the streetscape elements that will beautify this section of Main Street. The area will feature “kitchen party” seating, a new bus shelter, bike racks, new lighting, the display of public art and more. The new streetscape will also provide sidewalks with increased accessibility and the retention of on-street parking.
A big thank you to the everyone - especially our downtown businesses - for their continued patience and understanding during this important project. It's been a messy couple of months, but the work is necessary and the improvements will benefit all once complete. #infrastructureupgrades #downtownrevitalization
