WARSAW — Numerous trees have been removed and stumps have been grounded into sawdust. Small flags pointing out underground utilities now dot a long stretch of East Market Street in Warsaw.
But what will happen next?
The city of Warsaw will host a meeting on Thursday, March 7, to update neighbors and others as contractors gear up for phase two of the Market Street renovation project.
The estimated $1.9 million project was slated to begin last year, but was delayed by legal wrangling over a right of way issue.
The project will span nine blocks from Bronson Street west toward the railroad tracks near Hickory Street and will entail widening the road, new curbs, sidewalks, lighting and an extension of a bike path that exists further to the east.
Thursday’s meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall’s council chambers, 102 South Buffalo St.
City officials will provide an overview of the project, a timeline, what to expect, and how this will affect other city services including traffic, according to a news release from the city.
Phend & Brown Inc., of Milford, is the main contractor.
