Work is progressing on the infrastructure and streetscape project. Street closures in the area continue. Please see the updated Downtown Street Closure Map.

This month the following construction will take place:

·        New stormwater and sewer utilities installation, new sidewalks, new Windstream duct work, grading and asphalt paving on Oak Avenue

·        Sidewalks and Irrigation on Vance Avenue from Main Street to Dale Earnhardt Boulevard

·        Installation of new streetlight bases and soil stabilization Vance Avenue

·        Site grading and concrete foundations for planters and seat walls on West Avenue from  Vance Avenue to West B

·        New waterlines for the Oak Avenue Shopping Center (Food Lion)


Once completed the streetscape will be a dynamic urban park that includes unique green space, outdoor dining and social activity areas. Vida, the mixed use Demonstration Project, by the Lansing Melbourne Group, should begin construction in 2018 and the Sports and Entertainment Venue construction will begin in summer 2018.
