Plans moving forward on next phase of Anna street, sidewalk project
Plans are moving forward on the third phase of a major street and sidewalk improvement project in the downtown Anna area.
An update on the plans was shared at a regular meeting of the Anna City Council which was held on June 7. The meeting was at Anna City Hall.
City administrator Steve Guined reported that the bidding process for the two-part project is expected in July.
Sidewalk improvement construction work is slated to begin in August or September. Street work is planned in September or October.
Work is planned along parts of South Main, Davie and Lafayette streets.
The cost of sidewalk improvements is expected to be in the range of about $250,000. Expenses on street improvements are projected to cost about $80,000.
The costs will be covered by state motor fuel tax funds, which the city already has on hand.
The upcoming work is the latest part in a series of multi-year, multi-phase improvements in the downtown Anna area.
The improvements have included, and will continue to include, the creation of green areas and other beautification efforts in the downtown area of Union County's largest community.
The next phase of the improvements is planned along North Main Street. City officials hope that work can be done in 2017 or 2018.
