The streets around Tipp City are looking busy as construction began this week on the long-planned Veteran’s Memorial Park, located at the corner of Main and Hyatt. And construction on the next segment of the Main Street StreetScape, a comprehensive program to renovate and beautify Main Street, should begin very soon – tree removal has already begun. The segment of Main Street between Tippecanoe and Hyatt will undergo extensive reconstruction through the fall of 2007 as contractors replace pipes and stormwater systems. Above the ground, new sidewalks, gutters, curbs, and driveway approaches will be installed. The project will also include installation of decorative lampposts and a three-foot wide strip of grass, known as a curb lawn, to improve safety and aesthetics as tourists and townspeople traverse our town’s busiest thoroughfare.
