Parking areas in alleys behind buildings will be repaved at the same time

(Cherryville) City officials say despite delays, crews are making great progress on the revitalization project in downtown with completion set for late summer. Meanwhile, businesses remain open.
“We’re making great progress on our downtown revitalization,” said city manager Brian Dalton. “But, we’re being flexible as we work through challenges.”
Dalton said that, as is the case with any large project, the crews have worked through delays caused by the weather, availability of materials and workers, and unforeseen construction issues.
“To keep us moving forward,” Dalton said, “we’ve slightly changed our plan. Soon we’ll work on replacing the sidewalks and light poles from Depot Street to Pink Street.”
“At the same time, we’ll repave the north and south alleys,” said Dalton. “That’s going to allow folks to park behind the buildings and use the rear entrances while we work on Main Street.”
Dalton said that after the alleys are paved, the work will begin on replacing sidewalks and light poles from Pink Street to Mulberry Street.
Downtown Director David Day emphasized that repaving Main Street and side streets will occur last.
“We’re all looking forward to that great day,” said Day. “Our citizens have been very patient, and I know they will be excited with us to see the project complete. We’re planning a celebration in the early fall.”
