Sidewalk improvement plan still on track
By Candace Sipos -- firstname.lastname@example.org
WINCHESTER -- The city sidewalk improvements project that has been under way since August is still on track.
"We're just really looking forward to when it'll be done and we'll have a nice, finished product out there," said city engineer Kelly Henshaw.
Two of the four phases of the $2 million project -- Valley and Millwood avenues -- have been completed. Officials hope the entire project will be done around June.
Half of the funding is coming from the city, while the Virginia Department of Transportation is providing the other half, according to Joel Davis, public information officer for the city.
On Monday, the third section of the project will get under way, which will involve repairs to South Loudoun Street.
The final section will be near Daniel Morgan Middle School. Workers will be repairing sidewalks along South Purcell Avenue from Jim Barnett Park to Woodstock Lane.
"A lot of people park on the street," she said. "The impact will be the parking to the residents there."
Usually, the city inspector delivers notices to nearby residents in such situations when they will be unable to park near their homes, she said.
The entire project has been going well so far, she said.
