If you have visited Downtown Kannapolis you have probably noticed that the first phase of the Kannapolis Downtown Revitalization Project, the streetscape and infrastructure improvements, are now underway.

In May the following work will be underway (weather permitting):

-      Paving & striping on Vance & Oak

-          Curb & Gutter work begins on Vance & Oak

-          Sidewalk installation on Vance

-          Electrical work on Oak

-          Work on Dale Earnhardt Blvd will be completed and all lanes reopened

-          New electrical feeds for Main St. streetlights

-          Continue install of sewer & stormwater on West Ave. to West B

-          Ductbank installation on West

-          Waterline installation on West B from Oak to Chestnut

Once completed the streetscape will be a dynamic urban park that includes unique green space, outdoor dining and social activity areas. Vida, the mixed use Demonstration Project, by the Lansing Melbourne Group, should begin construction in 2018 and the Sports and Entertainment Venue construction will begin in summer 2018.
