In a community the size of Newark, it doesn’t take long for the chatter to get around, especially in the age of Facebook.
In fact, it was on Facebook where Mayor Jonathan Taylor attempted to take on questions, concerns and even misinformation about the village’s $10.2 million reconstruction project on South Main Street, which is on track to be completed in November.
Ramsey Constructors of Livonia, Livingston County, is the general contractor of the project, which runs from Union Street to Rose Drive.
“It’s nice to see everything coming together,” said Taylor.
Some sidewalk work is still going on — there were spots that needed to be filled in after NYSEG removed the old streetlights — and South Main Street still needs a final coat of asphalt, he said, along with other punch-list items.
