Kessler Theater sidewalk renovation to begin in July

kessler sidewalksThe Kessler Theater’s “complete corner,” with wider sidewalks and other pedestrian-oriented amenities, could be completed by January 2015.

These things take time — design on the project began over a year ago — but it will start moving this summer. City Council is expected to approve a construction contract Wednesday, and work could begin in July.

The $220,000 project, which is funded by grants from the Davis Garden TIF and the North Texas Council of Governments, is expected to include bollards, bike racks, trees, planters and historically accurate streetlights.

The Kessler corner is significant because it is expected to set the tone for West Davis sidewalk improvements, for which the city has $979,000 from a TIF district.
