|Update on the Beverly to Bell Sidewalk Project|
|The HCCA received the following update on the Beverly Rd. to Bell Rd. sidewalk project on November 2 from Project Manager Vinnie Sullivan:|
We received preliminary plans for the project from our design consultant early this week. The City will need to review the plans and walk the project area to see what changes, if any, we’d like to see. Following that, we’ll schedule a community meeting to gauge community reaction and ask for ‘final’ plans based on the community and NC DOT review. Since there’s a federal funding component, we’ll need to have the plans put through that review process as well. It’s a long process, but this area is not an easy one to design a sidewalk for (we say that the easy ones are built already). Since we’ll also need to plan utility relocations, easement acquisitions, etc., we expect to begin construction on the project within the next 18 months or so.
