Steve Sartori
Marshall Street is looking dapper these days, thanks to the completion of the second phase of the Crouse-Marshall Street renovation project in August.
     Work began on phase two in May. Sidewalks and the street surface along Marshall Street were finished with bricks. On South Crouse, utility poles were removed and underground lines were installed along both sides of the street, and, where needed, new concrete sidewalks were laid. On both Marshall and South Crouse, trees were planted, and new benches, bicycle racks, and trash receptacles were installed.
     In addition, the street surface at the South Crouse-Marshall intersection was redone in brick, a new bus shelter was built along South Crouse, and information kiosks were installed on South Crouse and at the corner of Marshall Street and University Avenue.
     The project—designed to revitalize the Hill business district—is a cooperative venture among SU, the University Hill Corp., and the Crouse-Marshall Business Association.
      The first phase was accomplished through a $1.85 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secured by U.S. Congressman James Walsh of Syracuse. Walsh obtained an additional $1.93 million in HUD funding for phase two.
