The makeover for Main Street in Salisbury will be getting underway in downtown next month.

Last week the city council approved a $4.6 million contract with Corrado Construction Company for the stretch that runs from Route 13 to Division Street.

They will not only replace the sidewalks, landscaping and street lights but also the 100 year old sewer and water mains.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that initially it had been scheduled to begin last fall.

But a decision to include high-speed internet lines caused a delay.

Mayor Jake Day told the Daily Times that they will be the fastest in the state.
