Cedar Fairmount’s Streetscape Renovation is finally complete. There are a few little projects to be completed. When Odot signs off on the project, trees will replace the small shrubs along Heights Center Building, and Chase Bank.( Probably in the Spring.) An RTA Bus Terminal will be installed soon. The Postal Boxes are slated for installation. The new flower beds will also be evaluated and improved. Because of the gas line replacement, water main breaks, paving of Cedar Road, the project took longer than anticipated. Thank you for your patience during the construction.
