Main St. Plaza to Receive Drastic Makeover

SALISBURY,Md.- Andrew Wackett has been taking pictures for a Main St. coffee shop for the past two years.

But as construction time approaches, he says you cant beat the current backdrop or the convenience. 

"It sucks because it's a beautiful area out here, it's really close to the shop so it's not hard for me to get out here and take some photos."

The popular plaza will be getting a pretty drastic makeover.

The City of Salisbury received a 1 million dollar grant to re-do the entire brick strip, most of which will go to replacing old utilities. 

The re-construction of The Plaza should only take about one year, the process is supposed to begin in October of 2018.

The city's goal is to bring people into town.

Right now you can drive westbound on The Plaza, but come 2018, when construction is over, you will be driving eastbound.

A change some people, such as Macaiah Motes, agree with.

"If the goal is to get more traffic downtown I think it'll work out," he said.

An additional benefit will be parking, with an actual street comes plenty of new spaces. Business owner Tony Weeg can personally relate.

"I'm illegally parked out in front of my studio in what should be a spot, so i love that there's spots coming downtown," he said.

Although the changes will be evident, the city says they are necessary for a promising future.
