Main Street Construction

The City is embarking on a top-to-bottom reconstruction of Main Street. This is not simply a repaving project. We’re building a Main Street that is not just a way to drive from Point A to Point B…but a 21st century Main Street, that embraces modern urban design philosophies, that is built to encourage parking your car and walking to multiple experiences, all throughout downtown. 

Due to this project, there will be construction activity happening along Main Street. Visit the Main Street project page to view the construction going on in the designated work areas.
