Traffic Impacts 

With the work continuing on 3rd Ave between Broadway and Evans, expect some short delays with access to the Post Office while crews work in this area and suggest to park on Railroad to access the post office. During paving operations in this area on Saturday and Monday, crews will close access into the post office from 3rd Ave. Temporary access will be allowed from Railroad with a flagger assisting traffic. 

Access on 3rd Ave between Main and Broadway will be closed Monday morning during paving operations so there will be no exit traffic from Bank of the West and Lumber Liquors during this time. 

One way traffic pattern will continue along the curve at 4th and Evans. Traffic will only be allowed to travel west/north along the curve between Park Ave to the end of the curve. This is to allow safe travel through this narrow section until asphalt and striping are complete. Please adhere to the traffic signage. 

As driveways are poured, please stay off them for 7 days after the concrete is placed in order to let the concrete gain strength. 

All work described is subject to change based on weather conditions and materials supply. Thank you to all residents for their assistance with moving their vehicles and patience as we reconstruct our public roads. As a continued reminder, this is an active construction zone and please stay out of the roadway when work is occurring, especially the wee lil ones! 

Safety tip! – Lots of traffic delays this week and next Monday. Please plan accordingly and avoid these areas. We’re almost done!!!
