600 Block of Market St. Set to Close on May 8, 2019

Posted: 05/07/2019
An extensive downtown street and sidewalks construction project in the 600 block of Market Street calls for the road’s closure, beginning Wednesday, May 8, 2019.

The $493,515 improvements project calls for rebuilding approximately 300 linear feet of concrete street with new sidewalks, curbs, street lights and tree wells in the 600 block section.

Traffic will be detoured east on to West Church Avenue, north on South Gay Street, then west on Clinch Avenue. Pedestrian access will be maintained on one side of the street at all times.

Work is expected to continue for 150 days for the project, with the completion scheduled for mid-October 2019.

The contractor for the project is McKinnon Construction Co.
