City Kick Off Windsor Avenue Improvements

City’s Windsor Avenue Improvements to Make Area Safer, Encourage Business Investment

Mayor Lois J. Frankel joined local business owners and area residents in kicking off the Windsor Avenue improvement project today.  The $1.2 million dollar project will improve the area’s safety, encourage new business investment and beautify the street.  The project is funded by the City’s Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA).

“This project continues our commitment to revitalizing our City and improving local communities,” said Mayor Frankel.  “The improvements will make this area more attractive for businesses and safer for our nearby residents.”

The improvements will be along Windsor Avenue between 25th Street and 29th Street.  New sidewalks will be added, greatly improving safety for pedestrians, including school children.  New overhead lighting will also improve the area’s safety.  New curbs will be put in place, the area will be landscaped and the CRA will replace aging infrastructure, including underground drainage pipes.  Work on the project is expected to be finished in the spring of 2009.
