The project includes the installation of a sidewalk on Grant Street, between Stimson Avenue and Morris Avenue, installation of curb ramps, and installation of a storm sewer on Grant Street and Stimson Avenue.

The Contractor for the project is D.V. Weber Construction, Incorporated. They expect to begin work June 18 and complete the project in mid-August. Construction on Grant Street will be completed in phases, and requires closures on Grant Street with signed traffic detours.
