Sidewalk Reconstruction Underway on Fifth Street
COLUMBIA - Construction to repair the sidewalk on Fifth Street began Wednesday between Locust and Cherry. The work will result in the closing of parking spaces adjacent to the sidewalk, but access to nearby businesses like Flat Branch Brewery and Flat Branch Mortgage, will be open.
Workers will widen the sidewalk from seven feet to fourteen feet and lay down brick.
The Boone Construction project manager said that his contract runs thirty days but good weather could mean the project is done in three weeks.
