A lot has been happening on the project over the last few weeks and things are starting to move quickly.  Concrete base has been installed on a large section of the new plaza and crews are working at installing curbs and more concrete base every day. 

The new retaining walls have been stained and are awaiting graffiti coating which is coming soon, and we also painted the existing fire hydrants! Keep a close eye on the plaza in the coming weeks as much of it will start to look like the final stages are getting close.

Beginning early next week, the City and the contractor will be conducting two water shutoffs to switch to the new water main.

Shortly after that is completed, the contractor will start final concrete and asphalt restorations.

Progress, progress and more progress has been happening down on 1st Street!  All of the structural footings, foundations and much of the underground work associated with the project has been completed.  The team is moving up from the Riverwalk with the new sidewalk addition matching into the new retaining walls, stairs and working our way up to Main Street.  With just a little bit of imagination you can picture how the site will look soon.
