By now you have probably noticed we started Phase 1 of the City of Statesboro's Blue Mile Streetscape project. The project consists of roadway upgrades and drainage improvements to the Blue Mile corridor. Below ground there will be new water, sewer, and storm drainage; on the surface there will be improved curb and gutters, driveways, sidewalks, landscaping, sidewalk lighting, and pocket park bus stops. Currently we are finishing pouring concrete on the last of the driveways, the next step will be to start landscaping and pouring stamped-colored concrete. We are scheduling to lay asphalt in late September/early October and hope to complete this project by year's end. MEI appreciates all of the patience and grace that the local community, business owners, and the City of Statesboro has shown us over the last 12 months.
