Temporary Road Closure - Downtown Main Street


On the morning of October 7th, the contractor will be on-site to install the custom twig benches incorporated along Main Street as part of the Downtown Streetscape and Reconstruction Project. These benches are solid concrete, large in size, and difficult to maneuver. To correctly install these benches, the entire 200 block of Main Street (from 2nd to 3rd Street) will be utilized as a staging area for the benches to be dropped off. This will allow room for the small crane lift to pick up and move the benches into their final locations. Multiple parking stalls and single lane closures will be utilized in the 100 and 300 blocks of Main Street as well.

The contractor will be observing traffic flow throughout this installation as it will be constantly shifting and modified as different areas will need to be accessed.

Below you will find a map of the closure areas. In addition, a photo of the twig benches can be found for your own reference.
