Construction Update – Downtown Projects

Concrete base repairs on the east side of Main Street are nearly complete.  The contractor will be placing the intermediate course of asphalt on Friday, August 23.  On Saturday, August 24, temporary striping will occur.  Once striping has occurred, all lanes of traffic will be open and parking will be restored on Main Street.  The contractor will then begin making repairs to the sidewalks and isolated curb ramps on both sides of Main Street.  While this is occurring, parking will be temporarily removed within the work zone.  Following the Black Swamp Arts Festival, work will move on to Wooster Street.

When the rehabilitation of Wooster Street begins, work will proceed in a similar pattern with concrete base repairs followed by an intermediate course of asphalt being placed.  During this work, it is anticipated that Wooster Street will be closed in both directions due to the narrower road width.  This will allow concrete trucks to safely maneuver through the work zone.

After the entire project area has the intermediate course of asphalt applied, the contractor will then finish the concrete repairs along the sidewalks and ADA ramps.  Once complete, the final surface course of asphalt will be applied.  Weather dependent and progress of work, paving is anticipated to last through October.

The installation of water services and fire lines is continuing on East Court Street between Main and Prospect.  This should be completed this week or early next week.  Restoration of the sidewalks and pavement on East Court will begin next week.  This work is anticipated to last into September.  During this process, access to City Lot 1 will be maintained as much as possible from either Main Street or Prospect Street.

The timeline above is dependent upon progress of work and weather.  Continued patience with the ongoing construction is appreciated.  Questions about this work may be directed to the Engineering Division at 419-354-6227.
