Square under construction
Construction began on the Central Park project Monday in Mt. Pleasant. The project includes new water, electric and sidewalks for Central Park and also reconstruction of one-half of the roadway bordering the park on the east, west and north sides. The construction means one-way traffic in the square area. With the renovation on the Union Block Building, passing between the building and the park construction area, shown in photo, is a tight squeeze. It is hoped that all the cement work is completed this fall in the park and the street. However, the project will stretch into next year due to the replacement of infrastructure and seeding. The completion date of the project is next May.
