A Hub of Construction Activity

Shepherd Street roundabout construction

Posted Wednesday, Nov. 15

The Hillsborough Street Phase II corridor continues to be a hub of construction activity. Currently, construction crews are working between Brooks Avenue and Shepherd Street completing a variety of tasks:  

  • At Shepherd Street the City’s contractor has crews working on the installation of the projects first roundabout; 
  • New curb and gutter and driveway aprons are being installed Between Shepherd Street and Daisy Street;
  • At Dixie Trail crews are installing a new water main, electrical and telecommunication conduits, and will start the installation of the new storm drains shortly;
  • And the new brick sidewalk installation is progressing along the corridor From Dan Allen Drive towards Dixie Trail. 

The November Construction Update Meeting was held on Tuesday, Nov. 14, and we were happy to see some new faces in the group. Richard Dixie, the Project Manager, gave an overview of the last month’s construction progress and a basic idea of what to expect in the coming months. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, Dec. 12, at 2 p.m. at East Village Bar & Grill. We hope to see you there.
