Niles downtown sidewalk replacement project starts in April
NILES, Mich. – According to a press release from the city of Niles, the downtown sidewalk replacement project will begin on April 3, 2023 and is expected to be completed by August 31, 2023.
The project will consist of removal of the planters, brick pavers, and trees along Main Street from Front Street to Fifth Street and Front Street from Main Street to Sycamore Street.
Officials say once the current features are removed, the new concept will be installed, which is the same concept installed in front of the post office apartments at 322 E. Main St.
The elimination of the planters will create a larger and less restrictive feel to downtown according to city officials.
The project will be separated in phases in an attempt to be the least disruptive to downtown.
The $936,510.00 contract has been awarded to Northern Construction Services Corporation of Niles.
