WEST JACKSON STREETSCAPE UPDATES
Progress continues this week on our Streetscape Project. On the north side of the 200 block of West Jackson Street, sidewalks are almost complete and are now tied into Madison Street. Only a small amount of brick inlay work remains. Concrete will soon be poured between the granite curbing and retaining wall. Work continues at the mid-block crosswalk, steps are being installed, and grading has begun. As additional street grading takes place, extra dirt will be removed, making the street look much cleaner, and historic brick pavers will be re-installed.
On the north side of the 300 block of West Jackson Street, seven new trees have been installed. This type of live oak tree will grow upward instead of outward but still supply shade to the sidewalks.
Our #ShopToItWestJack promotion continues through August. When you support our West Jackson merchants, you have a chance to win Downtown Dollars. Merchants are encouraged to continue to promote this program to shoppers as well. Additional details about the #ShopToItWestJack promotion are available online at downtownthomasville.com.
