Traffic Impacts 
With asphalt removal starting this week on 3rd Ave between Railroad and Evans no on street parking will be accommodated for this area until the project is complete. Also there may some short delays with access to the Post Office while crews work in this area and suggest to park on Railroad to access the post office. One way traffic pattern will be in place along the curve at 4th and Evans. Traffic will only be allowed to travel west/north along the curve between Park Ave to the end of the curve later this week. This is to allow safe travel through this narrow section until asphalt and striping are complete. Please adhere to the traffic signage. 

All work described is subject to change based on weather conditions and materials supply. Thank you to all residents for their assistance with moving their vehicles and patience as we reconstruct our public roads. 

As a continued reminder, this is an active construction zone and please stay out of the roadway when work is occurring, especially children! 

Safety tip! – There are open trenches as new storm drain and waterlines are being installed. Please stay clear from the edge of the trenches as there is a fall hazard as well as the sides of the trench can cave in.

Safety tip! – if you have the need to enter the construction zone, please give our flaggers a heads up and they can tell you how best to stay safe. Plus it’s a boring job and they would love a quick chat!
