College Street to close between New Avenue and 9th Avenue for two months beginning Feb. 8



College Street will close to through traffic between New Avenue and 9th Avenue for approximately two months beginning Wednesday, Feb. 8 for work related to the Route 66 Streetscape and Broadway Plaza Project. During this time, a contractor will be installing utilities, stormwater lines, new curb and gutter and pavement. Access to all businesses will be maintained. 

The Route 66 Streetscape Project involves extending the downtown streetscape look from Broadway Avenue west to the Route 66 Roadside Park with new ADA sidewalks, landscaping, street lighting, utility improvements and on-street parking. Improvements also include decorative crosswalks and a pedestrian plaza area at the intersection of College Street and Broadway Avenue. 

The cost for this project is approximately $1,145,608 and it is funded by the 1/4-cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax and the Federal Transportation Alternatives Funds. The project is expected to be complete in June, 2017.

Thank you for your patience as this work continues.
