From Council Member Jim Graham:
“I am pleased to announce that DDOT has informed me that the contract for the reconstruction of Sherman Avenue has been awarded. As you may know, I had worked with the Mayor to insure funding for this important project in this fiscal year.
There was a pre-construction meeting with the contractor this week. The contractor is scheduled to start construction on October 18th.
There have been ongoing community meetings culminating in a final design of the streetscape. Thanks for that essential contribution!
This will provide further substantial revitalization for Ward 1, here in our east side neighborhoods.”
You can find lots more info on the Streetscape project here.
