E&N Hughes was the general contractor and Fehr-Graham was the engineering firm for the $4.1 million project, which started June 8.
MONROE - Birthing pains for the new streetscape in Monroe's historic downtown Square are officially over. Light now floods the sidewalks from period-style lamp posts. Old gray, metal parking meters that once lined the streets are gone, replaced by wispy, young trees, recently decorated with miniature lights for the holiday season.
