Downtown Streetscape Phase III:

This project will improve both sides of N Main St between Elizabeth Street to Wolfe Street with sidewalk reconstruction, addition of curb ramps, replacement of traffic signal poles, new pedestrian signal systems, new illuminated street signs, and new street lighting. In 2015, the Public Works Department was awarded a Transportation Alternatives Program grant from VDOT for $469,332, matched by $117,333 in local funds.  However, all bids received to construct the project were well over the available funding.  Public Works applied for an additional $212,356 in Fall of 2017, matched with $53,089 in local funds to complete the project.  Grant awards will be announced in Spring 2018.

The project has been designed by McCormick Taylor and construction is anticipated to start in the Fall of 2019, if funding is awarded.
