Water Street Project Near Completion
The second phase of the Water Street project has progressed well this spring and is on schedule to be completed on time. The final layer of asphalt and minor concrete work, which is weather dependent, is scheduled to be completed by June 30.
Downtown St. John’s, which represents the businesses in the area, have been promoting the importance of downtown during the project and encouraging people to show their support on social media with the #lovedowntown contest. Every week, a gift card for a business in the construction zone is awarded to a participant of the contest. The contest continues until July 12.
Water Street businesses, property owners and employees of downtown businesses are invited to attend a debrief session on Monday, July 29 from 11 a.m. to noon in the Foran/Greene Room, City Hall. Information shared will be considered during planning for Phase III in 2020.
A Water Street Stakeholder Committee including organizational representatives from all business sectors in the downtown have been actively engaged in planning, providing advice and guidance throughout the project.
