Sidewalk makeover continues in downtown Salisbury

Published 12:09 am Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Workers are breaking up the sidewalk and laying down bricks as construction continued in the 100 block of West Innes Street in downtown Salisbury on Tuesday.

Crews previously removed trees along both sides of the street and are now laying sidewalks that will mix brickwork with concrete.

City officials say the old sidewalks had deteriorated and were not uniform with those in other parts of downtown.

The cost of the project is about $150,000. More sidewalk improvements are planned toward the Innes Street bridge.

Work began May 8 and was projected to take as long as 12 weeks.
