Construction crews are starting on the latest step to re-shape downtown Durant.
The $500,000 project is Phase 2 of the downtown streetscape project. This phase centers around the Old Market Square at First and Evergreen. The Phase II project meets the Phase I at First and Main and goes one block north to First and Evergreen then one block west to Second and Evergreen.
Streetlights, brick sidewalks, and street lights are just some of the improvements for the project main street hopes will open up accessibility to downtown.
Of this Phase 2 project, eighty percent is federally funded. A dedication will take place next Tuesday.
