Progress Being Made on Sidewalk Projects
New Capital Projects Status Report Released
Progress continues to be made on a number of Town-led capital projects, including installation of new sidewalks in various parts of Garner.
According to the Engineering Department's quarterly Capital Projects Status Report, which was presented to the Town Council at its July 16 meeting, the Town is advertising for bids from contractors this month for the planned sidewalk project along the south/west side of Spring Drive and the west side of Vandora Springs Road from Spring Drive to existing sidewalk near 7th Avenue.
The Town also expects to advertise for bids this summer for the sidewalk project on Vandora Springs Road from Tiffany Circle to Timber Drive; for New Rand Road improvements; and for sidewalks along the north side of Garner Road from New Rand Road to the Garner Senior Center.
In addition, right-of-way acquisition is getting underway this summer for the Timber Drive sidewalk connectors project.
These projects are mostly funded with bond proceeds approved by Garner voters in 2013.
