Street Scrape

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

The sidewalk along the south side of Washington Street is removed Tuesday afternoon as Greencastle's streetscape project continues work in the Vine-to-Bloomington street corridor of Washington Street. The general contractor, OLCO of Batesville, started the job Thursday and is due to complete the work by Sept. 20. No actual pavement repairs are included in the project, designed to upgrade the Washington Street area between downtown and Bloomington Street as a portion of the city's $19 million Stellar Grant package. New, wider sidewalks and 12 new decorative streetlights and improved drainage are part of an effort intended to give Washington Street "more of a neighborhood feeling rather than a truck route," project manager Leah M. Cosgrove of CECon Civil Engineering Consultants, has said.

  • It should be noted that the Greencastle City Engineer is also the owner of CECon, the engineering firm for this project. Can you spell "conflict of interest"?
