Washington Street Pedestrian Mall Makeover Reaches Halfway Point
A neglected, dismal-looking pedestrian area in downtown Binghamton is being transformed in an ongoing $636,000 project.
Crews at the Washington Street construction site have been working for the past two months. They're expecting the renovations will be completed in a couple more months.
Mayor Richard David said the project between Court Street and the MetroCenter entrance will transform "a concrete jungle with new green space and amenities."
Utility work at the project site was completed in June. Electrical and water lines were upgraded. New fire hydrants also were installed.
The project will include landscaping, lighting and decorative pavers.
The construction work is being done by Procon Contracting of Vestal.
