Construction Begins March 28 on Innovative Greenscape

Post Date:03/24/2016 4:51 PM

(Fayetteville, N.C.) — Construction activities for the Person Street Innovative Stormwater Greenscape will begin on Monday, March 28. The project will provide a corridor facelift to Person Street between Cool

Spring Street and Cross Creek Bridge, greatly improving appearance to a major downtown gateway. Motorists may encounter delays while traveling in the area. The project duration is six months.

This “Green Street” project provides an opportunity to implement innovative Low Impact Development (LID) devices. The downstream receiving stream, Blounts Creek, will benefit from the improved water quality. This project, located within the heart of Downtown Fayetteville, represents how existing gray to green conversions in major downtown transportation corridors can be completed using innovative LID devices incorporated within the “Green Street.”

This “Green Street” will also encourage public understanding and involvement, due to the high educational potential offered via location, with improving water quality.

Browe Construction is the project contractor.
