Hamilton this year has been spending $3.2 million construction project along Main and B streets, for two main reasons: Crews replaced 6- and 8-inch cast-iron water mains, about a century old, along Main Street with 12-inch ductile iron mains. They are now continuing with a “streetscape” beautification of sidewalks, which includes addition of the street lamps.
Detours this summer caused Main Street businesses significant losses of revenues, but owners are hopeful their fortunes will rise again.
The work comes in preparation of the east-west corridor becoming an entertainment district that will support the proposed Spooky Nook at Champion Mill, a planned gigantic indoor sports complex. That project, if its development agreement is approved in October, is expected to open in the summer or fall of 2021.
