Erie Street’s new $2.4 million dollar look is coming together lately. Over the past week, construction crews paved Via Italia’s new roundabout (Erie Street and Parent).
The “La Bella Strada” project is a LEED Certified, outdoor, cafe-oriented setting styled with “old country” elements, reduced on-street parking and will feature an incredibly ‘greened’ stretch of roadway with hundreds of additional trees and flower planters.
Phase One of the project included the reconstruction of the entire street between Howard and Hall.
Over the summer, new curbs were constructed to accommodate sidewalks and accompanying patio spaces.
Completion of the last remaining road work components of La Bella Strada — including the roundabout — is expected for the end of construction season in November.
