The village of Ephraim has until the middle of July to submit their plans to improve its streetscape in conjunction with the Department of Transportation’s road reconstruction project scheduled for the fall of 2018. Village officials hosted a public meeting earlier this month to discuss with residents and business owners the cross-sections of the Highway 42 project from the Wetland Preserve to Anderson Dock. Village administrator Brent Bristol says the cross sections meet the DOT minimums, which is good in order to protect the integrity of Ephraim.
Residents stressed to the village that it would like to see improvements to its storm water sewer system and pedestrian safety when the project is completed in 2019. Bristol says final drawings and price estimates should be available by June.
