Happy Halloween! There have been no tricks but plenty of treats for the CenterG project over the past week.
Crews completed paving Randall St. and the lower half of the 300 block of Trade St. in time to begin installation of the new Princeton Sentry Ginko trees on Monday. If you’ve been downtown this week you may have noticed what a dramatic change those two milestones have made.
Another milestone will be reached on Monday when the 100 block of Trade St. reopens to vehicles. It will mark the first time since mid-January that the entire length of Trade St. downtown will be open to vehicles.
Barricades will be removed from Trade St. on Monday morning and moved to Victoria St. (from the intersection with Trade St. to E. Poinsett St.), where curb and sidewalk demo will begin the same day. Weather permitting, silva cell installation will begin on Nov. 11. Sossamon Construction officials said they will work to minimize disruption to pedestrians, particularly in front of Greer Relief and Resources.
Workers hope to complete electrical work on School St. next week to energize streetlights on Randall St. Storm drain and curb and gutter work also is continuing on the east side of School St.
