The project to rebuild Davis Street downtown is now 45 percent complete — according to a big illuminated sign board on Chicago Avenue near the construction site.

The project which has kept the street torn up for much of summer, is scheduled to be finished before the end of October.

Workers last week removing and stacking bricks from the old sidewalk outside Creative Coworking for possible reuse.

In addition to repaving the street, adding a bike lane and replacing deteriorated brick sidewalks with mostly-concrete ones, the project also has involved replacing old water and sewer lines and gas mains.
