WILMINGTON — After months of delay, the City of Wilmington will finally break ground on its North Front Streetscape project Monday. The work will affect the 200 and 300 blocks of Front Street.

Work will begin along Front between Chestnut and Grace streets, sectioned off for completion in two weeks. Crews will close half the intersection at Grace Street and the entire 200 block of Front Street between Chestnut and Grace. 

Though construction will take place on the roads, the sidewalks will remain open to businesses. Vehicles traveling south on Front or east on Grace will be allowed through the intersection. Pedestrians also can pass between the 200 and 300 blocks, according to a release.  

Upon completion, by September 2022, the 200-300 blocks of North Front will look uniform to its southern counterpart. Beautification and landscaping of Front between Market and Chestnut wrapped in 2010.

The $3.5 million project is paid for by a voter-approved Transportation Bond Projects and jointly funded with the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority.
