Major Street Improvements: Construction Update
Main Street Now Open to Public Traffic
Major downtown street improvements began on Monday, February 6, 2006 in a City initiative centered on addressing street and drainage issues. The scope of work will consist of the removal and replacement of existing asphalt pavement, sidewalks, and driveways. It will also include the replacement of existing traffic signals and the removal and replacement of existing street lighting. The improvement project will also upgrade all existing water and sanitary sewer lines.
The Engineering Department has worked with Downtown business owners and the Central Business Association to schedule and begin improvements and reconstruction of streets within the area in phases. Construction on Main Street is now complete from Santa Fe to El Paso Street and has reopened to benefit traffic flow as of March 1, 2006. Construction in the adjacent area near the Plaza Theatre will continue posing periodic short-term closures:
- El Paso to Santa Fe will be a two-way street
- El Paso to Oregon will be a one-way street traveling west bound
During the next 28 months the following streets will be reconstructed in ongoing phases:
Franklin Ave. from Campbell St. to Santa Fe St.
Mesa St. from Main Ave. to San Antonio Ave.
Mills Ave. from Campbell St. to Mesa St.
Oregon St. from Main Ave. to Wyoming Ave.
Stanton St. from San Antonio Ave. to Wyoming Ave.
Santa Fe St. from Paisano Dr. to Loop 375
** Construction updates will be provided when construction begins and ends.
