Things are looking different each day around the downtown areas of 5th Street. Just about all the sidewalks have been removed and planters are being formed and poured. The biggest change you may notice about the 5th Street project is 5th Street is now a two way street between Ella and Lincoln Streets. This will be an adjustment for many of us, I know it will be for me. The street light has been temporarily replaced with a stop sign at 5th and Ella Streets. So keep watching for more changes in the near future.
This week, the proper mix of dirt has been added back to the area of the street in preparation to pour a new street. The sidewalks are being removed on the east side of the block. So, 5th Street is looking a little different each day. Check out the new photos posted below. You can click on each photo to enlarge and read the caption at the bottom for details.
Things are looking different everyday in the 100 block of North 5th Street. Yesterday we had trees on the west side of the street, today they are gone. The bricks and the concrete from the street are gone and we are down to dirt. We will be posting photos on the progress of 5th Street Project weekly, so check back with us soon.
