Construction on the latest downtown improvements will begin the day after Christmas, and should be completed before the 2003 Derby Breakfast.
The second phase of the ongoing streetscape project will be along Broadway, including reconstruction of sidewalks and construction of new pedestrian crosswalks.
Work will begin on the north side of Broadway from Ann to Lewis Street. This portion of the project is scheduled to be complete on Jan. 21, 2003.
Jamie Wigglesworth, president of Downtown Frankfort, Inc., said he's excited to see the project begin.
"It will finally make Broadway a beautiful street," he said.
