Capital Improvement Projects

The City uses both staff and contractors to keep our public infrastructure in good condition. Below is information on the recent, current and coming projects. Please note that there is regularly additional construction taking place around the City, by other governments, development companies or private land/property owners.

Nicholson Street Road Improvement
Roadwork will take place starting June 1, 2021 to replace curbs, sidewalks, and driveway aprons in preparation for road resurfacing later this year. Tree boxes will also be updated for planting this fall. If needed, No Parking signs will be placed 48 hours in advance. Please pay attention to posted signage along the road and move your vehicles if needed to avoid towing.

Jefferson Street Bike Boulevard
The Citywide Transportation Study recommended Jefferson Street be designated as a Bike Boulevard to enhance pedestrian and traffic safety. The City is currently is analyzing recommendations provided by a Toole Design Group study to determine appropriate traffic calming measures along Jefferson Street from Queens Chapel Road to Baltimore Avenue.
