A series of roadway improvements are underway in Old Town. The work includes replacing crosswalks, installing upgraded ADA ramps, and applying a pavement preservation treatment to the roadways. The work is expected to be complete in late October
and will be done in four phases:
Late Summer 2022:
Phase One and Two: Complete
The first two phases of the ADA Ramp Improvement Project are complete. Crews installed more than 30 ramps in the project area in July, and crosswalk construction at five Old Town intersections wrapped up in August. New scupper plates (drainage
structures) are currently being installed throughout the project area.
Early Fall 2022:
Phase Three: Micro Seal Treatment
The third phase of the project will be the application of a micro seal treatment to streets adjacent to the work area. The micro seal pavement treatment helps extend the life of asphalt streets and reduces maintenance costs. This work is expected
to take two days to complete. Please see the micro seal schedule below.
Phase Four: Crosswalk Stamping
The newly constructed crosswalks will be stamped with a brick pattern and painted with an acrylic epoxy coating– the result is a decorative treatment that ultimately extends the life of the asphalt. This work is expected to take two weeks to
To help minimize disruptions to businesses, work will take place early morning, Monday - Friday between the hours of 2 a.m. to 11 a.m. Business and pedestrian access will be maintained during construction. Expect full closures of most
intersections during construction; intersections will be reopened daily by 11 a.m.
Please use caution, follow detour signs, and plan ahead to avoid delays. Thank you for your patience during construction.
