Downtown Drainage and Parking Improvements
The project will include installation of new storm water drainage pipes in multiple locations downtown, along with new streetscape parking along Edwards and Campbell Streets. This work will impact many downtown streets at various times throughout the project including Broadway, Edwards, Campbell, Hurd, Main, and First Streets.
The first work that will impact motorists will begin by mid-June as contractor will close the eastbound lane of Edwards between Broadway and Littler to install new streetscape parking. This closure is expected to last approximately one month with cooperative weather. The westbound lane will remain open during this time however eastbound traffic will be detoured at Broadway. As work shifts from one area to another, drivers should expect a variety of lane closures, street closures, and parking closures. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes as necessary.
Crossland Heavy Contractors was awarded the contract for this project in the amount of $2,174,000.00.
