5/31/19 Update

We Are Paved Out! Yesterday we finished placing the last of the asphalt on the north end of the project and last section of bridge!

Remaining work on the project will be striping in areas where on-street parking is allowed. This work is anticipated to happen early next week, weather depending. After this work is complete we will remove our temporary traffic control devices and open the street up to through vehicle access!

As this is the first time in over three years that there will be through vehicle access on Water St. we ask those with children and pets to be aware of the expected increase in traffic over what has been considered the norm the last few years.

Water St. is currently closed for through vehicle access. Addresses 1600 and above should be accessed from the north, and 1528 and below should be accessed from the south

After the asphalt goes down the remaining work to do on the project will be striping, which is weather dependent and will either occur at the end of this week or early next week.
