The Augusta Street Streetscape Project, which began this spring and will extend streetscaping along both sides of Augusta Street between South Main Street and Field Street, is progressing as scheduled. The scope of the project includes shifting the existing vehicular travel lanes along Augusta Street to accommodate new sidewalks, streetlights, landscaping, and other pedestrian features.
Crews began construction on the south end of Augusta and have been working their way toward Main Street with demolition and hardscape installation. Weather permitting, sidewalk improvements are expected to be completed from Green Lettuce to Mellow Mushroom this week; from Mellow Mushroom to Emporium between August 28 and September 8; and from Emporium to Smoke on the Water between September 11 and 22.
All adjacent businesses will remain open during construction.
