A continuation of good weather could ensure the completion of Vandalia's downtown enhancement project.


"Sometime in April we will be totally out of here," Terry Fields of Hank's Excavating and Landscaping of Belleville said during Friday's "Mornings on Main Street" meeting held by Vandalia Main Street.

Fields told city officials, some downtown merchants and representatives of Main Street that all of the concrete work has been completed, and that all brickwork should be done by the end of next week.

He also said electrical work will start and dogwood trees will arrive next week.

"Then, we have some general cleanup and striping," Fields said.
