Construction on the Sunset Drive streetscape improvements project in Blowing Rock will start this week.

The project extends from Valley Boulevard to Main Street.

Construction will include the replacement of existing water and sewer lines, replacement of sidewalks, curbs and gutters, minor drainage improvements, removal and placing of trees and new roadway asphalt.

One lane of the street will be closed during active construction. The project is expected to be finished by November.
