New sidewalks enhanced by granite curbs, trees ensconced by decorative grates, and energy efficient, colonial-styled lampposts are scheduled to grace the downtown—and give a boost to the Westport’s historic charm—by late spring, First Selectman Jim Marpe announced today.
The infrastructure project, funded by a $497,595 state Main Street Investment Fund grant awarded in July, will include 9,800 linear feet of new or existing sidewalks, including 1,800 feet on Main Street.
“The Town of Westport is proceeding with plans to implement improvements to its downtown commercial district this spring,” Marpe said.
Stephen Edwards, director of the Department of Parks and Public Works, said he expects the project to commence in April and take about five weeks to complete.
