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.
