The Streetscape Project includes numerous structural and cosmetic improvements to Public Square. Structural work includes the replacement of underground phone, gas and electrical lines and the filling in of old vacant underground vaults. Above ground work includes, new roads, sidewalks and curbing. Aesthetic improvements include new landscaping to Public Square Park, brick paving on sidewalks and crosswalks and ornamental street lamps. The project also encompasses a redesign of the square's traffic and pedestrian patterns. It is hoped that all of these changes would create a square that is more appealing, as well as more traffic and pedestrian friendly.
