Indian Alley is getting an overhaul starting today. The alley, which runs parallel to the Old Town Pedestrian Mall, will be improved with new sidewalk, streetscape, and repaving. The opportunity also allows replacement of all of the underground utilities.
Mor details from the City of Winchester’s official statement:
The City’s work on the Indian Alley Improvements Project will begin as scheduled on Wednesday, August 1. During the period of August 1 thru August 31, Indian Alley will be closed to vehicles between Cork Street and Boscawen Street. In addition, Wolfe Street between Braddock and Indian Alley will also be closed. The businesses along Indian Alley will be open during their normal schedules during this period and the City is doing everything possible to ensure that access to these businesses by foot traffic is maintained at all times.
