Downtown streets to be resurfaced
Close to six blocks of streets in the downtown area will be resurfaced starting around October 11. While the project involves temporary road closures, businesses in the area will remain open and customers may find ample parking nearby.
Streets to be resurfaced during this project include:
• Commercial Street – 2 blocks, between Ash Avenue and 1st Street;
• Dallas Street – 1.5 blocks, between Ash Avenue and 1st Street;
• El Paso Street – 1 block, between Main and 1st Street; and
• Fort Worth Street – 1 block, between Main and 1st Street
The City contractor will first begin work on Commercial Street. Each street is expected to take approximately two weeks to complete, weather permitting. All work is scheduled to be completed around Thanksgiving, weather permitting.
The project costs $373,134 and is funded through the 2008 General Obligation Bond.
