Construction Continues on Lincoln and Monroe Corridor

Construction means opportunity.  Our streets are being fixed and those pesky potholes will no longer be a problem along Lincoln and Monroe. 

Lincoln and Monroe construction between Main and 2nd Avenues is in full swing!

This is the final leg of work to upgrade the Lincoln and Monroe corridor. Improvements to the area include:

  • Full removal and replacement of asphalt pavement
  • Replacement of aging waterlines
  • Replacement of various storm drainage structures and lines
  • Improvements to private utilities underground
  • Installation of ADA compliant wheelchair ramps
  • Minor sidewalk and curb repair 
  • Replace signal system

Waterlines around the Lincoln and Monroe corridor were built in the 1890’s; this project will replace these aging waterlines. The last full rebuild of corridor was over 50 years ago, in the 1960’s.

Don’t fear coming to the downtown! Citizens are encouraged to utilize the businesses along Lincoln and Monroe, as they are severely impacted during construction.  Local businesses are extremely important to our city! Please pay extra attention to those businesses located in construction zones, they need and want your business. 

Having trouble finding parking? On street parking in the area is limited during construction but there are many parking alternatives and some are even cheaper. Check out this map full of alternative parking options for your next visit downtown!
