Katz said that the Chestnut portion of the work was almost done. On Walnut Street, the replacement of water lines has been completed. Curbs are being rebuilt but concrete and asphalt still need to be poured to complete the project.
Heavy rains have slowed work at times this summer and the project still could be delayed by more weather issues, but Katz said it is unlikely it would stretch into the new school year in September.
“It shouldn’t affect the start of the school year,” he said. “I think it will be done in the next few weeks.”
