Construction of revitalized Beecher Terrace well underway

Messer Construction is working on the Beecher Terrace project.

Phase One of the Beecher Terrace project has already gotten started and will have a major impact on the city’s look when it’s done.

The contract requires 33 percent of new construction workers be residents of the Beecher Terrace/Russell neighborhood. Among those workers is Timothy Fuqua, a general laborer working with mason crew. He’s also a neighbor and said he’s proud to be a part of the project.

“It’s great being a resident of this area and I knew what it looked like prior,” Fuqua said.

The final days of Beecher Terrace are almost a memory now and Fuqua said it’s for good reason.

“To be able to tear it down and revitalize the area – it’s a beautiful thing,” Fuqua said.
