Improvement to lighting, sidewalks, more on downtown Beaufort's Duke Street

Not Duke Street, but pretty close.

Update May 24: The Island Packet writes that work is expected to starte in early June on the first area of improvements — on Duke Street from Bladen to Harrington streets (map below).

First reporting: The Island Packet is reporting that the City of Beaufort has received a $500,000 grant to improve the street conditions -- gutters, lights, pavement, sidewalks -- of Duke Street. 

The money would help improve the stretch from Bladen to Harrington streets and if the project is a success a second round of funding could carry it down to Carteret Street.

Get the story at the paper's website.
