City hosts Second Street party

Second Street will have a city celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony July 9, a bit less than a month after the road officially reopened.

Langley spent $2.7 million to redo the street and water lines under the roadway, a project that lasted from mid-January until early June. The redesign increased walking space on the sidewalks and crosswalks, and created a new crossing area called the plaza. Several planters and rain gardens were included along the city easement as well.

The official ribbon cutting will be at 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 9 and will include presentations from Janet Ploof, president of the Langley Main Street Association, Director of Community Planning Jeff Arango and Mayor Fred McCarthy. There will also be a barbecue courtesy of The Braeburn Cafe, Useless Bay Coffee Company, Callahan’s Firehouse, Sweet Mona’s and ice cream from the Langley Community Club. Trio Nouveau will perform as well.

The celebration will last from 4 to 7 p.m. in the plaza.
