Remember back in April when the Main Street Makeover began?
It's been a long road, so to speak, but we're nearly at an end.
The project is scheduled to be complete — meaning all lanes open — on Friday, Nov. 23.
Here are the five things that need to be done before this project can be marked "Complete."
A seat with a view
A lot of historical finds — from soda bottles to human bones — happened during the Makeover. But while most were removed, one is staying right where it is to become its own attraction.
A well or cistern — the city is still researching to find out which it is — from pre-1890s will be covered with plexiglass and have a seat wall on two sides for viewing. An educational sign will also be near by.
Light, action ... concrete
On the brighter side of things, new street lights will be delivered and installed down Main Street.
Construction on two remaining corners — University and Olde Town — will be completed using bricks from the original Main Street for planters.
And finally, it wouldn't be a construction, er, makeover, project without concrete. Concrete placement will take place north of University and south of Second. Appropriate traffic markings will also be added.
Then on Friday, Nov. 23 all lanes should be open.
Get ready to start your engines, Rochester.
