Downtown Reconstruction Project

Overview

This summer’s Downtown Reconstruction Project will involve the replacement of the Beech Street bridge crossing East Creek and reconstructing portions of Stoughton Avenue, Beech, Willow, Boldt, Sixth and Seventh Streets. Crews will be upgrading the utility services as well as the street, sidewalk and boulevard. 

The construction of the road and utilities will require various road closures and detours from July through November. 

Starting July, Stoughton Avenue will be closed to thru traffic between Seventh and Fourth Streets for resident parking and construction activity.
