A major sidewalk replacement project is underway in McArthur and many of the village's commercial areas will benefit.

Crews from Stockmeister Enterprises in Jackson began the project on Monday, June 5 by cutting down several trees on West Main Street to get ready for the project. Overall, five trees will need to come down in the project zones. Traffic was slow going through the area, but kept moving as crews worked.

McArthur Mayor Kim Wortman stated the village was able to obtain grant funding to pay for the sidewalk project. Part of the project will involve replacing a section of sidewalk which is in poor condition by the McArthur Subway restaurant on Market Street. This section also goes by the former Gosling house that may be torn down soon by the county or possibly by real estate developers. The new sidewalk should, the mayor has noted, really improve the looks of that part of the village.

Another part of the project involves replacing the section of sidewalk from Clark's Pump N Shop to Percelli's Pizza on South Market Street. Many people walk on this section of sidewalk and this constitutes another important improvement to enhance both safety and appearance.

There will be some other work done as a result of the project. McArthur Councilman Dana Peters is acting as the project manager and working with Stockmeister crews on any issues that many surface. Mayor Wortman is asking the public to be aware of the construction crews as this important project continues.
