Crescent Street Improvements are Underway

At the GNA meeting in March, the program was a presentation about Crescent Street by City Engineer Lou Casolo. Lou and Clerk of the Works, Anthony Carolluzzi reviewed the improvements to be made during the 3-month long project.

  • They are working with a $1,000,000 budget.
  • There will be a 4-foot sidewalk and a 3 1/2-foot brick amenity strip between the sidewalk and the street.
  • There will be trees in cast iron encasements and decorative illumination.
  • The street will have two 11-foot wide travel lanes.
  • Parking will be on the south side of the street only (2 of 17 on-street parking spots have been sacrificed.)
  • The project began in May and will take 3 months to complete.
  • New sidewalks will go the full length of Crescent from Taylor Reed to Glenbrook Road.
