Transportation/DOT - June 8, 2017

First Street, between Church and Liberty streets downtown, will be closed to all traffic starting Monday, June 12, to allow a contractor to start laying a new waterline that must be in place before the Business 40 reconstruction project can begin. A detour will be posted. Main Street will remain open where it crosses First Street.

This work will affect a significant number of downtown commuters who use First Street in the evenings. 

Work is expected to be completed mid-July, weather permitting, after which construction will shift west to the two blocks of First Street between Liberty and Cherry streets. Work will continue to progress westward in two-block segments until the project is completed at Peters Creek Parkway. For more information call CityLink 311.
