Front Street project begins

Part of Front Street in Downtown Wilmington is getting a facelift, but it could make it a little tougher to get around for a few months. Crews closed Front Street between Market and Princess Streets today to begin a $1.8 million streetscape improvement project, a joint venture between the city and the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority. The project will eventually expand to Chestnut Street. Crews will replace aging water and sewer pipes, sidewalks, crosswalks, lighting, traffic lights and landscaping. Businesses and sidewalks will remain open throughout the project, which the city says should wrap up in July. Visit the Front Street Project's web page for more information.
