The project is approximately 25% designed. Funding was approved by the City to advance the project through the final design phase. The schedule for design is estimated to be one year. The schedule for construction is estimated to be two construction seasons. Construction commencement will be dependent on funding.
Several neighborhood meetings, one public meeting and a meeting with business owners have been held to solicit feedback from the community. Additionally, several interim improvements have been made including reducing lane width on Concord St. to slow traffic, installing a “Do Not Block the Box” on Concord St. at Danforth St., and making Danforth St. two-ways to the parking lot entrance to improve access.
