Brick sidewalks and granite curbs — similar to the new look on Main Street — are coming soon to Post Road East.
To store owners on the south side, they can’t come soon enough.
The project — which includes an expanded sewer line — is underway, from Tiffany to the former Max’s Art Supplies.
Last week, stores like Dovecote, Joie and Fig Linens had limited accessibility.
Now they’ve been told the state won’t allow plywood bridges, until the work is done. That could take 2 weeks.
Meanwhile, those shops — some of them locally owned mom-and-pops, with only front entrances — are suffering.
The sidewalk and curb will look great — when they’re finally finished. Then, hopefully, Westporters will do more than admire them.
They’ll use them to patronize the stores that sacrificed while they were installed.
