Consolidated TIF Project Updates
City redevelopment staff are busy designing and planning this year’s construction projects. Here are some updates on what’s coming to South Main St. and Concord Mall in 2017.
Main St. Streetscape Project
We are excited to be in the design phase of the Main St. streetscape project. We are designing a streetscape that will extend from Indiana Ave. all the way to the 20 bypass exit. We are looking at filling in missing sidewalks, repairing damaged sidewalks, and adding ADA ramps where needed. The plan will also include installing lighting (to match the light fixtures used on the Indiana overpass project) and adding benches/shelters for the bus stops along South Main.
Concord Mall Drive Streetscape Project
We are about 60 percent done with the design for the streetscape project on Concord Mall Drive. The design aims to beautify the street, improve pedestrian safety, and complement the new Martin’s Supermarket and the renovation of Concord Mall. Plans include adding a sidewalk on the north side and a multi-use path on the south side, as well as landscaping. New lighting will also be installed to match what was used on the Indiana Ave. project.
