Bump-out on Main Street at 5th
ThisNext week, contractors will be installing a brick sidewalk bump-out on the north side of the intersection of Main Street and 5th Street. This bump-out will extend the sidewalk 7.5 feet into Main Street at the existing crosswalk location in front of Selborne House. The bump-out will allow for vehicle and crossing-pedestrians to better see each other without any reduction in on-street parking. This sidewalk extension will also reduce the incidences of speeding at this location. In addition to the bump-out, both ramps on the south side of the intersection will see improvements in alignment and ADA accessibility.
