This reconstruction project is estimated to last approximately four weeks. We kindly request that you plan your activities accordingly, avoid the construction zone when possible, and consider alternate routes.

Commercial St/ North Commercial St Paving- REVISED Monday, August 14, 2023
Due to predicted weather (rain) on Tuesday 8/15, the traffic control changes for the Commercial St repaving project will be adjusted to keep the project on schedule.
The future roadway work/schedule will be as described below:
Section Date Traffic/Parking Implications
SB lane, Canal to Granite 8/15/23 One way North, Parallel parking NB ONLY Granite to Canal including striped angled spots Granite to Spring
SB lane, Canal to Granite 8/16/23 One way North, Parallel parking NB ONLY Granite to Canal including striped angled spots Granite to Spring
NB lane, South of Spring St 8/17/23 One way South, No parking on both sides Granite to Spring
It is important to note that once initial milling/paving operations are complete, there will be a time period in which striping for the roadway and parking will not exist until the final paving is completed. Work to adjust drainage/sewer structures, driveway matches, sidewalk modifications and final paving will need to occur during this time. Parking will be restricted immediately adjacent to the structures and other work, however, will be available anywhere not explicitly signed.
The recently constructed section in the vicinity of the Spring St/Tru Hotel will not be part of this project. Access to Arms Park and associated parking will be available during the duration of this work.
It is strongly suggested that the parking at Arms Park be utilized by those that currently park along Commercial St/ N Commercial St. Currently there are ample spaces available on a daily basis in this lot and access should be unrestricted by the work due to the section by Spring St not being affected during this period. Those currently with Blue/Green Zone parking passes will be able to utilize other city lots in the area while parking is limited on Commercial St due to this ongoing work.
Access to the businesses along Commercial St/ North Commercial St will exist with possible slight delays as work is performed directly adjacent to the driveway entrances.
Future notices will be distributed prior to the final paving as well as any necessary updates, should the schedule be affected again.
Portable message boards will display current messaging as work commences so please pay attention to these on a daily basis.
