City Road Construction
The second phase of the Crescent Connector Project will consist of constructing a new roadway connecting Park Street to Maple Street and a full-depth reconstruction of Railroad Street. Work will begin on May 15, 2023, with the preparation of the site with construction limit fencing and signage. Construction will begin in earnest on May 22, 2023, on Park Street. This project will impact Park Street, Main Street, and Maple Street at various times throughout the course of the construction. Moveable message boards will warn of street and lane closures. It will also include the installation of new traffic signals at Park Street and Maple Street. The project will include bike lanes and new sidewalks, and the entire route will have new street lights installed. Phase 1 of this project, which focused on railroad crossing improvements within the City core in 2022, is now complete. Both phases of this project have been in development for the past 12 years, and the construction of Phase 2 will complete this long-term project. The estimated completion date of this project is November 2024.
