Depot/Church Realignment Project

The Depot Church Realignment Project will realign Depot Street with Church Street through the Community and Cultural Center (CCC) Parking lot. This project is intended to improve traffic flow into and around the Downtown area.  The project is being coordinated with a private residential project to be constructed on the former Hale Lumber site. 

Project work in the public right-of-way is scheduled to begin the week of March 28, 2022, with work continuing through October of 2022. 

Please remember to drive cautiously through construction areas and follow signage for detours. We recommend utilizing alternate routes as much as possible while the work is being completed. This project schedule may be impacted by weather or experience other project-related delays.
