In anticipation for winter conditions and to invest in important infrastructure, we will be working on upgrades to increase safety for pedestrians, enhance stormwater systems and update the bus stop at Main Street and Galena Street.
Bus Stop Improvements
Replace Existing Sidewalk and Ramps to meet ADA Standards
Permeable Paver Installation
Curb and Gutter Improvements
Work Activities: demo of sidewalks, roadway, curb and gutter, trenching activities, sawcutting, utility work, masonry
Traffic Impacts & Detours: Pedestrian and business access will remain open. It is expected that both westbound lanes will be open for the majority of the work, but there will be periodic right lane closures for construction access. Trenching activities along the west side of Galena Street from Main Street to Hopkins Avenue will require periodic alternate routing. Follow signage and flagger instructions.
Parking will be closed on the east half of the south side of Main Street between Mill and Galena. In that section the curb, sidewalk, a bit of the roadway and part of the gas station lot will be under construction. Please note that this project is occurring concurrently with the Castle Creek Bride/Hallam Street Improvement Project.
Bus Impacts: September 12 - October 31, the Galena and Main Street bus stop will be shifted one block east (Hunter and Galena) for continued service.
Contractor: Excavation Services, Inc.
Cost & Funding: $214K from Engineering Planned Projects/General Funds
