251 South Street & Town Hall
The drive entrance on South Street has been poured. The sidewalk along South Street should open 11/4/21.
Work by Charlotte Water on the water and sewer lines is on-going for the next 10 days. In addition, work on the parking lot began on 11/1. The job of grinding and coring out the parking lot to prepare it for paving is the first phase. This will be followed by loads of gravel delivered by dump trucks. A rolling machine will then be used to flatten out and level the gravel so that the asphalt work can begin. Work on the parking lot should wrap up with asphalt binding (which will involve dump trucks and a small roller which will cause some ground vibration) from 11/22-11/24.
Project Description: With voter approval, the Town of Davidson will be proceeding with a $14 million dollar project in support of public facilities for public safety, town staff and programming, and community use.
