South Street is getting a makeover.
State Rep. Michael O’Brien announced Tuesday the state has awarded the South Street Headhouse District a $525,000 grant to help with the construction and renovation of the road and sidewalks.
Here are some of the improvements coming, according to O'Brien's office:
• Narrowed driving lanes to calm traffic/enhance pedestrian safety
• Wider walking paths
• Realigned crosswalks
• Speed bumps
• Pedestrian-level lights
• Directional signs
The South Street Headhouse District covers South Street from 11th Street to Front Street, as well as some pockets off the main thoroughfare, including Fabric Row.
A timetable for the installation of the improvements wasn't immediately available.
