FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Commercial Street will close for approximately six weeks between Division Street and Locust Street beginning 6 a.m., Monday, Oct. 21 for construction work related to the Division Street and Commercial Street Intersection Improvement project.
Motorists are advised to seek an alternate route and to use caution when driving through the work zone.
About the project:
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.
Completion of construction is anticipated by the end of November. 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.
