Fayetteville City Council members this week will discuss whether to redo a nearly four-year-old parking setup at the north end of Block Avenue.
Topic: Block Avenue enhancements
Tweaks will be made, but don’t expect to see any major design changes on Block Avenue.
The committee will hold a special meet Monday afternoon to discuss possible adjustments.
City officials say they understand the changes will take some getting used to, but that the plan is truly for the best.
When we walked by this weekend, we noticed one vehicle that had somehow managed to pull into one of the parking spaces the wrong way.
The intersection of Block Avenue and Spring Street will be closed this week as part of the Block Avenue enhancement project.
There are several intersections on Dickson Street that will eventually need to be replaced, but for now, only the intersection in front of the post office will undergo a facelift.
The project will officially be underway as of March 24 when Dickson Street is temporarily closed off at the intersection of Block Avenue.
Expect to see nine-foot-wide sidewalks, new lamps and street trees as part of the revitalization project that’s aimed at creating a more friendly pedestrian link between the square and Dickson St.
