Park Lane work is nearing completion and according to city sources is still on schedule for a May 29 grand opening celebration of a Friday night concert on May 29 followed by a Saturday open-air market on May 30.
The laying of paving bricks on the west end of the street near Starbucks has halted due to quality concerns. Marsh bank Construction still expects to complete the Park Lane project by May 29 despite the failure of the bricks to pass a quality control test.
Marsh bank returned the deficient bricks on Wednesday and immediately reordered a new set from its manufacturer.
To meet the target for substantial completion, Marshbank will rearrange its schedule to focus on the east block of Park Lane and on building the concrete intersection of Main Street and Park Lane.
