UPDATE: The third lane (turning lane) on North Center Street (301) is scheduled to officially begin on March 5th, 2018. It is our understanding that traffic flow will be maintained during the period of construction. Only during the replacement of the culvert (near Taylor Blvd.) will there be a detour. ODOT has now informed us that the culvert replacement will take 30 days. This will occur sometime between June 30 and August 28th. There is no FIRM date at this time. The three lanes will span an area from just north of Dollar General to just south of Forest Street. Thank you for your patience, this project has been 10 years in the making!
Many of the new power lines being installed on North Center Street are going into the middle of the sidewalk. Don’t be alarmed. The old sidewalks will be removed and new, wider, sidewalks will be installed as part of the project. Looks bad now, hopefully it will look great when completed.
