Work Underway in the Merchant Row Downtown Area

Merchant Row street and parking work began today with the excavation of the parking area north of the Squeeze Inn. The rest of the work will consist of the removal of the Squeeze Inn building, widening of the street to create additional angle parking, spot curb and gutter repairs between Madison Avenue and Crandall Street, and milling off the existing asphaltic surface between Madison Avenue and Crandall Street and replacing it with 2 inches of new asphalt.

The approximate dates for the rest of the project are as follows:

9/25/09 - Begin removing and replacing curb and gutter
9/29/09 - Demolition of Squeeze
10/7/09 - Mill surface of existing asphalt
10/12/09 - Place asphalt surface
