Groton — The state is expected to inspect work on the Mystic Streetscape project by Friday, according to a project update from the town manager's office.
The beautification project along Water Street included extending sidewalks, installing granite curbing and improving drainage and on-street parking. Work extended from the entrance to the Mystic Art Association to the intersection of Water Street and Noank Road.
The contractor was expected to finish painting lines on the street by the middle of this week, the update said.
"The project is coming to a close, but over the next two weeks, additional plantings will be installed" along with benches and trash cans, the update said.
The work is the second phase of a streetscape project that came on the heels of a more extensive first phase, which focused on West Main Street. That project was plagued by delays and, combined with a recession and bridge repairs, took a toll on downtown businesses.
