[ARCHIVED] Reconstruction of Main Street West of Town Center Resumes in April

Main Street Reconstruction Project, PRC #602470

The Main Street Reconstruction Project seeks to improve roadway and pedestrian safety from the I-290 ramps to Maple Avenue through a more efficient and consistent road width, installation of sidewalks on both sides of the road, and improved signalization at the Old Mill Road and Ireta Road intersection.

The project consists of pavement rehabilitation, traffic signal reconstruction, new and/or reconstructed sidewalks, wheelchair ramp installation, installation and/or resetting of granite curbing, construction and/or rebuilding of retaining walls, drainage improvements, and associated signs and pavement markings.

The proposed roadway cross section consists of an 11-foot travel lane, and a 5-foot shoulder lane in each direction with accommodations’ for bicycles.

Currently… (updated as of March 26, 2019)

The reconstruction of Main Street is expected to resume April 1, 2019.

Between April and June, JBL Construction Company will be milling during the day and paving at night.

In order to minimize disturbance to traffic, JBL will be binder coarse paving at night from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM, Sunday night through Thursday night.

Weather permitting; we expect this to last no more than two weeks, and no more than three nights of disturbance for a single resident along Main Street.

Expect traffic delays on Main Street from the I-290 ramps to Maple Avenue.

Motorists should be prepared seek alternate routes.

Top coarse paving is anticipated to take place in October.

The estimated time of substantial completion is for November 2019.
