The 4th Street Improvement Project – a major revitalization effort, including enhancement of the midtown area – will begin Tuesday, May 26th. One of the first “signs” of the project will be actual signs on 3rd and 5th streets, telling you how to get to 4th street businesses. After traffic control and signage is in place, the removal of the existing asphalt will follow.
There will be one-lane, through traffic, throughout most of the project phases. Temporary closures, with detours to side streets, will occur when stormwater mains, water service lines, or accented intersections are being installed, or paving is taking place.
There will be three phases to the 4th Street Improvement Project. This first phase will begin at Foster Avenue and end at Miller Avenue. The second phase, starting in late June, will begin at the alley north of Lakeside Avenue and proceed north to Foster Avenue. The final phase starts in mid to late July, beginning from Miller Avenue north to Harrison Avenue.
When completed – target date early October 2009 – midtown will be a rich blend of public art, eclectic shops, restaurants and residences, paved intersections, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, and tree-lined streets.
