Concrete sidewalk construction will continue on a daily basis (excluding weekends) for as long as the weather cooperates. Ramps are being installed from the road, over the sidewalks, up to the front entrances of buildings so folks can access their buildings while the concrete is being installed.

There may be brief closures of driveways during concrete sidewalk construction and because some of the driveway aprons need to be rebuilt to ADA standards. The contractor will work to ensure access is restored as quickly as possible. If any business or property owners have trouble accessing their buildings, please let us know so we can do whatever we can to address your concerns.
