The city of Danville will hold a stakeholder meeting on Thursday to provide an update on the River District development project. The meeting is open to the public and will begin at 7 p.m. at the Community Market on Craghead Street.
Currently, two streetscape projects are under construction.
In the first phase, which began in September and focuses on three blocks of Main Street and one block of Union Street, the city’s contractor has completed streetscape improvements in the 300 block of Main Street and is now working in the 400 block.
The second phase, which began last month, involves the construction of the Gateway Plaza and fountain in front of Lou’s Antiques and Jakes on Main. The city’s contractor this week is continuing the installation of the storm drain system for the plaza.
The River District project also features construction of a new parking lot at 500 Main St., a parking study, a Riverwalk Trail connection, utilities upgrades, design guidelines, and development of a marketing plan and designs for roadway and pedestrian signage.
