Fresno City leaders say construction could start on the project to turn the Fulton Mall into a street as early as this summer. Opponents of the project say they are not giving up the fight.
The city had expected to break ground on the project this month.
City Manager Bruce Rudd says they won’t make that goal, but they will begin work soon.
“We are hoping to have this go out to bid within the next 60-to-90 days. It will probably be on the street for sixty days. And hopefully back before the council in August to award a contract,” Rudd said.
