The City has released beginning dates for several Downtown Covington Revitalization Projects, set to be completed for the culmination of the City’s Bicentennial Celebration on July 4, 2013.
First on the agenda is the Boston Beautification Project, also being called Boston Streetscape. This job will include repairing and replacing sidewalks, adding additional handicap ramps, and replacing old planters with 99 new ones. The project is set to begin this month.
Also this month is the Boston Street Signalization Project, which will replace all hanging light signals with decorative metal light posts.
Columbia Street will be getting some well needed attention too. The street will be repaved from Boston Street to Collins Blvd, and various drainage issues will be corrected. This is being done in conjunction with the LA Department of Transportation and Development, who will then donate the state highway to the City. Owning this two mile stretch of road will be very beneficial to the City, allowing greater legislative control of the area. This project is set to begin in October.
Lastly there will be a general 2012 Street Maintenance & Improvement Project. This will involve street overlay and repairs as well as sidewalk repair. Locations determined on a priority basis, this project is scheduled begin in mid-October.
