Construction to Start on Market Street Enhancement Project

Construction on new ADA sidewalks along Market Street, from 9th street to 10th Street, is slated to begin on Friday, June 11, 2021.  Improvements include the installation of new sidewalks, curb cuts, street trees and landscaping elements within the new curb extension (bump-out) features.  Bump-outs are designed to encourage slower vehicular speeds, offer increased safety to pedestrians crossing the street while adding stormwater retention properties and street beautification.  Work will start each day no earlier than 7:00AM and finish by 7:00PM in accordance with City Ordinance 0-621.

Funding for this project is made possible by a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).
