The Main Street Upgrade project includes updates for One Main Park that help to expand its prominence on Main Street.
The intersection of Main Street and Sara-Placid Road will be reshaped by expanding One Main Park into the intersection. The curent cross-walk between Mirror Lake Drive and Sara-Placid Road by the Lake House Hotel will be replaced with one between the apex of the One Main Park expansion to Sara-Placid Road, on the same side. The cross-walk between The Dancing Bear and the Top of the Park will be removed. Directing pedestrians to the Lake House Hotel side of Sara-Placid Road will help the flow of traffic between Main Street and Sara-Placid Road, and continue to put pedestrians on the less congested side of that intersection.
New granite sidewalks will be installed along the road opposited the Lake House Hotel on Mirror Lake Drive. The granite will be the same 12" x 12" to 12" x 24" textured blocks used on the rest of the Main Street. New walking paths will also be laid in the park using the granite blocks, and new stairs will enable access to the lakefront. The lansdcape plan includes boths plants and trees that thrive well in Lake Placid's environment.
