North Wilkesboro – Construction began this week on the Town’s 9th & Main Streetscape renovation, The design was prepared by McGill and Associates, who also created the Downtown Masterplan and Streetscape Study in 2010.The initial phase involves Town Street and Public Utilities crews saw-cutting trenches to install conduit for underground power. Project contractor MBI Builders of North Wilkesboro, will then begin carving out curb extensions at all four corners. Construction will be carried out corner by corner, ensuring sidewalks and streets remain pedestrian accessible. The Town is aware construction at this busy intersection will be inconvenient at times, but the end result will be a safer more attractive center of downtown. Project completion is expected within 90 days, or early June 2017. Should any resident or business owner have questions or concerns, those may be referred to Planning & Community Development Director Sam Hinnant at 336-667-7129.
