Earlier this month, city officials announced that Washington Street will be getting a makeover in 2015 – freshening up the heart of SoNo by repaving the main road, as well as upgrading some of the brick sidewalks and adding new landscaping.

According to an article in The Hour Online, Director of Public Works Harold F. Alvord explained that while many of the charming cobblestone sidewalks will be retained, improvements will be made to the road and damaged patches of pavement. New crosswalks will likely be installed as well, similar to those found at the intersection of Washington Street and Water and North Water Streets, according to the article.

In a separate project, the city is also planning to replace the existing Branford Pear trees on the bustling street to further prevent their deep root systems from damaging the sidewalks. This work is expected to occur in late 2015 or early 2016. Read More→
