Drivers will face further lane reductions

June 15, 2006

Drivers can expect additional lane reductions as the Main Street System Enhancement project continues.

Because of utility work, southbound traffic on Main Street from approximately Connie Street south through the Seven-Mile Creek bridge work zone will be reduced to one lane beginning Friday, June 23, weather permitting, said Ken Miller, the city's Main Street project liaison.

In the lane reduction area, left turns from both northbound and southbound lanes may also be restricted at certain times of day, Miller said.

The utility work and lane reduction are scheduled to last for approximately two months.

In addition to the utility work, grading and road construction work on the new reverse frontage road north of Mary Street and west of Main Street will also necessitate the permanent removal of Main Street access to West Kay Street. Residents and motorists are advised to use Mary Street to access West Kay Street. Ultimately, the portion of West Kay remaining east of the frontage road will serve as an entrance to the adjacent properties.

Meanwhile, work continues on the intersection of Main and Ida streets and the nearby Seven-Mile Creek bridge.
