Construction is set to begin on the Downtown sidewalk replacement project this week. Sidewalk is being replaced on Route 23 from Route 20 to the railroad tracks, along with portions of sidewalk on east and west Prairie Street, east and west Washington Street, Ann Street, and possibly portions of Taylor Street. Downtown businesses will remain open throughout construction, just be alert as there will be disruption within the area. The Marengo – Union Chamber of Commerce is offering special promotions during construction so please visit their website, Facebook page, and app for more details.
Portions of Downtown parking will be closed during construction, so be alert, pay attention to signs and notices, and watch out for construction workers. Construction is scheduled to be completed by September 30th.
This project is being funded by a grant awarded to the City in the amount of $321,621.
