Ten years in the works, a project to improve a number of intersections in the downtown business district is set to begin next spring.

At their Sept. 16 meeting, village trustees awarded a $562,985 contract to J. Mullen and Sons, Inc. for the streetscape project.

The project includes redoing the intersections of Main and Washington, Main and Partition, and Main and Market using pre-cast crosswalk pavers.

In addition to the pavers, some curbing at the intersections will be replaced and better ramps with metal gratings will be installed at these intersections. In addition, ramps will be installed at the intersections of Main and John, Livingston and Market, Jane and Partition, in front of Mirabella’s on Partition St. and in front of the Boys & Girls Club on Partition St.

Of the more than $500,000 cost of the project, the village will have to pay 20 percent, with the DOT picking up 80 percent.
