Two sections of sidewalk in downtown West Jefferson are slated to be rebuilt in coming weeks Town Manager Brantley Price said Monday.
The sidewalks on either side of West Main Street are cracked and slightly buckled and pose a risk to walkers, Price said.
Vannoy Construction has contracted to rebuild the sidewalk on the south side of the street from Good Ole Days Ice Cream & More to the stop sign on the Backstreet, and on the north side from the Ashe County Chamber of Commerce to the alley at West Jefferson True Value Hardware. he said. The project will cost $24,468.
“They’ll be done hopefully by June 30,” he said.
Price advised pedestrians to be safe around these and other downtown sidewalk construction zones.
