FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Construction work to improve safety at the intersection of Division Street and Commercial Street is set to begin Thursday, Oct. 3.
The Division Street and Commercial Street Intersection Improvement Project involves modifying the intersection into a more traditional configuration, straightening the lanes of Division Street to a traditional three-lane section of roadway and reconstructing Commercial Street to intersect at a 90-degree angle and new stop sign. Sidewalks will be relocated to run parallel to the new roadway alignment and will include ADA accessibility upgrades.
This project is expected to last 60 days and will require the complete closure of Commercial Street for a significant portion of construction. Impacts to traffic will be announced with as much notice as possible.
The project is estimated to cost $213,000 funded through the 1/8-cent Transportation Sales Tax. The construction contractor for the project is A.T. Urban Development, Inc.
