At their August 21, 2023 meeting, the City Commission approved the 2023-2024 Pavement Preservation Project which will include reconstruction and resurfacing of several streets, sidewalks, and parking lots throughout the City.
Cass and E. Eighth Street Intersection Reconstruction Begins September 18th
The City's contractor, Team Elmer’s, will be reconstructing the Cass and E. Eighth Street intersection beginning Monday, September 18, 2023. Activities include a full reconstruction of the intersection with new concrete pavement and brick crosswalks. The work is anticipated to be completed by mid-October, weather permitting.
During construction, the intersection will be closed to all vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic. Traffic delays are expected. Pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular detour maps have been provided to assist those traveling throughout the City. Please use alternate routes avoiding this area to reduce congestion, delay and promote worker safety. Appropriate signage and barricades will be in place in and around the work area.
Access to all businesses, residences, and the Old Town Parking Garage will be maintained throughout the duration of the project.
This construction will generate dust, noise and cause inconvenience. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.
