Belt Line Road is about to get much prettier! As part of the Belt Line Road 1.5 Beautification Project, a new monument sign was recently erected at the intersection of Belt Line Road and Marsh Lane, which is a brick monument that features the Addison logo in white on top a blue background. The final project is slated for completion this fall.
According to an update from the town of Addison, the contractor is now in the process of installing retaining walls in the project area, which runs from Marsh Lane to Midway Road, that will create a cohesive look to the corridor. Due to COVID-19-related delays, the bus shelters and brick pavers have not arrived, but are expected to be delivered within a few weeks. Some of the median landscaping has already been planted and the remainder will be completed once the pavers are in place.
When this project is completed, Addison residents, business owners and guests will enjoy a unified design that includes shaded bus shelters, improved sidewalk connectivity, additional seating, site furnishings, paving enhancements and landscape enhancements.
This project was not completed on July 2, like was originally scheduled, because the contractor has had numerous delays in acquiring materials due to COVID-19. Some of the manufacturers have had to cease operations for a period of time due to executive orders in their state or region, and some have had to close due to illness. The current schedule shows the project being finished the week of August 15, but it is dependent on delayed materials arriving on time.
Thank you for your patience as the town continues to work to make Addison a better place to live, work and play!
