How long will the project last? 
The project began in 2016 with estimated completion fall of 2017.

What is the scope of the project?

  • Full pavement replacement
  • New overhead crosswalk signals and improved crosswalk designs
  • New textured sidewalk and pavers
  • New light design
  • Diagonal parking
  • Street trees, benches, planters, landscaping
Will my drive to work be impacted?
Some work will be done at night, with possible periodic lane closures after 8 p.m.  During the day, traffic will be maintained, but the lanes will shift for construction which may cause traffic delays. Truck detours will begin during Phase 2. The best way to stay informed is to sign up for our Road Construction Updates and receive email/text messages about lane shifts or closures and other issues that might arise during construction.

Will I be able to visit my favorite North Main Street store?
Yes! Sidewalk access to the stores and businesses will be maintained at all times.  

Will parking in front of the North Main Street stores be available?

While the diagonal parking areas in front of some of the stores may be closed for a period of time, access to all other public parking areas will remain open. 

What will happen to the sandstone sidewalks and curbs?
The approximately 20 square feet of sandstone sidewalk will be removed and stored for possible future use. The sandstone curb will be removed and replaced back into its place as part of the project. Curbing that is cracked or damaged will be removed.
