SALISBURY – The 1000 block of South Fulton Street will undergo an extreme makeover Saturday during the city’s second annual BlockWork Neighborhood Improvement Project.
To ensure the safety of volunteers, South Fulton Street will be closed from Harrison Street to Johnson Street from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, which is also national Make a Difference Day.
BlockWork, a grassroots program of the Community Appearance Commission’s Neighborhood Leaders Alliance, is designed to bring community supporters together to promote cleaner and safer neighborhoods, one block at a time.
Projects will include painting, landscaping, fence installation and other exterior improvements. Refreshments, tools and all materials for the project will be provided for volunteers.
Travel lanes will reopen around 5 p.m.
BlockWork is funded by grants from the Margaret C. Woodson Foundation, the Blanche & Julian Robertson Family Foundation, a cash award from USA Weekend Magazine, Newman’s Own, the Points of Light Foundation and contributions from individual property owners.
