Brick Street Update – July 17th, 2010

Business leaders and residents,

The street project is coming along at a rapid pace now. After speaking with the contractors and engineers this morning it appears that Main Street will be ready for hand work and crosswalks by early in the week. Court Street will follow right behind.

It is anticipated that the parking areas on Court Street will be poured beginning Monday – weather permitting.

Also on Monday, sidewalk removal work will begin on the west end of Main Street (south side) and progress eastward. It is anticipated that the contractors will look to do no more than half the block first and complete that work before moving on to the eastern half of the sidewalks.

This is the critical stage we have all been anticipating – please, if you have concerns about access to your business/building now is the time to engage in the discussions. We have a progress meeting scheduled for Tuesday, July 20th at 1:00pm. If you have any questions, concerns or comments I urge you to call me, the engineers, or plan on attending the meeting. The meetings are held in the Dallas County Board of Supervisor’s conference room; 121 North 9th Street.

I believe the sub-contractors are looking to begin lying the brick back down by the end of this next week.

Regarding Main Street, west of 9th. I believe the plan is to remove and replace the North sidewalk and curb sections in the next couple of weeks and have that section completed before the Sweetcorn Festival. The south side of Main Street, west of 9th is planned for removal and replacement until after the Festival. Again, if you have questions about this schedule, please let me know.

Finally, there is an update meeting scheduled for Thursday, July 22 at 6:00pm at City Hall – I hope to see you there.

Thank you for all your patience during this project.
