A week after approving a list of sidewalk repairs for Greencastle, city officials were pleased Wednesday to announce they have found additional money for the project.

The Board of Public Works approved spending an additional $51,000 on the project which is scheduled to be completed this fall. Joe Spiker Excavating won the bid for the project.

Last week, the board approved spending $68,000 to repair and replace a number of sidewalks throughout the city, including adding handicap accessible ramps at several locations.

This week, the board approved the following additions to the project:

-- 101 E. Franklin St. city block (Franklin between College and Vine). This includes removing a tree and adding handicap ramps.

-- Jefferson Street -- Columbia to Franklin -- replace sidewalk and addition of handicap ramps.

-- Jefferson Street -- Franklin to Washington -- replace sidewalk and add handicap ramps.

-- Jefferson Street -- Washington to Walnut -- replace sidewalk and add handicap ramps.

-- Southeast corner of Washington and Indiana Street -- add handicap ramp, remove existing pavers.

The sidewalk repairs are scheduled to be completed this year.
