On Monday, July 13th, the City began Phase 1 of the Downtown Streets Pavement Rehabilitation & Striping Project. This project is the latest step the City is taking to continue its investment in beautifying our Downtown area by improving more than 1 million square feet of roadways. Improvements are planned for 16 streets in the downtown area. 

In recent years, the City has invested in improving our downtown roadways including Graham Avenue, Main Street, Sumner, Chaney Street, and this year's Downtown Sidewalk Project. Phase 2 of this project has been approved to take place next year.
