As our crews continue to work diligently on punch list items many details are being addressed.

The major work task this week will be to address the ‘trench” settling along the north side of Main Street in the 900 block. Work on this area should commence this week with removal of the brick, compaction and concrete work and then replacing the brick. It is anticipated this work will take the majority of the week.

Parking on the north side of Main will be prohibited during the work on this punch list item.

Other items in the works or recently completed include:

All major lighting and electrical work is complete, there is still some minor hand work to complete.

Landscaping plans are under way but must wait for the critical planting date of April 15 to actual begin. Once begun, that work should be completed in short order.

The new street banners are up, new banners with a new look.

All areas of the street and parking remain open. Only spot parking or driving restrictions will be enforced as work progresses.

Street signs and parking zone painting is planned but is also weather dependant. This work should commence around the April 15th date also.

As always, thank you for your patience.
