Work started Tuesday on the North Central Street streetscapes project, expanding the improvements made to Jackson Avenue in the Old City northward to Woodland Avenue.

Crews will be replacing storm drains and stormwater pipes, repairing and constructing new sidewalks, planting trees and making additional improvements.

The goal is to preserve the area's history while paving the way for more development, improving walkability, and increasing green space.

A linear park is also in the works fort he block of North Central Street between Baxter and Hinton avenues.

You can find additional renderings and more detailed info about the project here.
