West Street, between Harry Street and Kellogg, will be reduced to one lane in each direction beginning Wednesday, May 27. In addition, left turns will be prohibited at Harry Street.
The lane closures are part of a project that will reconstruct West Street to a five-lane roadway with two through lanes in each direction and a center two-way left turn lane. Intersections and driveways will be constructed with larger turning areas to better accommodate commercial traffic.
The project also includes drainage and water line improvements, sidewalks on both sides of the street, and traffic signal upgrades with pedestrian safety enhancements at Harry Street and Walker.
Modified access to businesses will be maintained during construction. Electronic message signs are posted along West Street to provide advance warning of the lane closures.
The $4.4 million project is funded by local sales tax funds. Estimated completion is summer 2021.
