Fayetteville sidewalks

During last Thursday’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen work session, Croy Landscape Architect Brad Stringer gave an update on the sidewalk project, the first presented since early 2022. The plans include the four blocks around the outside of the square and Main Avenue South from Market to Campbell streets in front of Norman Furniture. If the budget allows, the southeast side of Main Avenue in front of Sissy’s Antiques will be included in the project since the survey work has already been done on that section. 

When the Fayetteville Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved a $5.1 million bond issue in November 2020, $1.25 million was allocated for sidewalks around the downtown square, of which 10% was set aside for engineering costs. The project was part of the Downtown Master Plan developed by The Walker Collaborative, located in Nashville. Huntsville, Alabama-based Croy Engineering, LLC, was hired to develop engineering and landscape architecture aspects for the sidewalk project.
