Plans for greener Main Street unveiled

May 17, 1994

Plans unveiled yesterday for the reconstruction of Annapolis' Main Street show a prettier, greener avenue from Church Circle to the City Dock, but no big changes for pedestrians or motorists.

The $5 million project is scheduled to begin in January or February and take one year to complete. Sidewalks will be widened and trees will be planted at the lower end of Main Street. Parallel parking would replace angle parking, resulting in the loss of 13 spaces.

Emory Harrison, head of capital projects in Annapolis, said the project is not merely the rebricking and beautification of Main Street, but a reconstruction of underground utilities as well.
