Construction of the sidewalk along Wilgrove Mint Hill Road could as early as today—weather permitting. The sidewalk will connect the Park on Wilgrove with Matthews-Mint Hill Road (Highway 51). Workers will begin on the park side and work down about halfway. Then they will begin near the CVS and work toward the park, eventually joining the sidewalk together. The funds for the sidewalk come from the stimulus dollars released by the federal government last year. The state Department of Transportation then divvied up the dollars to municipalities. The project will take about six weeks to complete.
