Project # 5 Sheafe and Chapel Reconstruction

Update 5/7/15: Due to funding shortfalls, this project is now planned to be constructed in two phases. Phase one will include lower Chapel St and Sheafe St. Phase one is still planned for construction this summer. Phase two would be the section of Chapel St from Bow to Daniel. If budgets allow, this second portion of the project will be completed in the spring of 2016.

Project Description: This project reconstructs these two streets in the City's downtown. Water and sewer mains and services will be replaced, storm drainage will be created, the roads will get paved and the sidewalks rebuilt with downtown street lighting.
