Construction on the next phase of the State Street Revitalization Project in Columbus is expected to begin in the spring.
Redevelopment Director Heather Pope says the work on Phase 2B will continue the same trail design in developing the north side of Third Street from Central Avenue to California Street. From there, she says the work will go north on California Street to Fifth Street. The work include a 10-foot wide multi-use trail, pedestrian lighting, new curbs, gutters and ADA-compliant ramps. In addition, all overhead utilities will be relocated underground. Pope says this phase of the project covers approximately 1,572 feet.
The council on Tuesday voted 5-1 to approve a resolution to fund Phase 2B of the project, at a cost of $1,475,000. City Councilman Tom Dell was the lone “no” vote. Councilman Frank Miller was not in attendance.
