Major Downtown Construction Project Near Completion
Still moving ahead of schedule, the initiative addressing the complete reconstruction of several streets in the Downtown area is set for completion early this Fall with the final stages of construction set in motion.
Throughout the past 18 months, the Central Business District Phase III Project progressed in ongoing phases of construction, substantially improving the operational and aesthetic conditions of the following six streets:
Franklin Avenue from Campbell St. to Santa Fe St.
Mesa Street from Main Ave. to San Antonio Ave.
Mills Avenue from Campbell St. to Mesa St.
Oregon Street from Main Ave. to Wyoming Ave.
Stanton Street from San Antonio Ave. to Wyoming Ave.
Santa Fe Street from Paisano Dr. to Loop 375
The scope of work for each segment of the project consisted of the complete overhaul of the street infrastructure and featured the replacement of existing asphalt pavement, sidewalks, driveways, existing traffic signals and street lighting. The improvement project also upgraded all existing water and sanitary sewer lines.
The final stages of the project are currently set in motion. Construction on the last stretch of Franklin from Oregon to Mesa is expected to finalize in September and work underway along the western portion of Santa Fe from Pasiano to Loop 375 is slated to complete in August. The last construction project under this initiative requires the temporary closure of the Mesa and Main intersection which will take effect sometime in September for approximately 6-8 weeks.
