The 8th Street Reconstruction project is out to bid, with bids due April 4. These bids will be reviewed and final project parameters will be discussed at the April 15th City Commission meeting.
As you have likely noticed from the last two city commission meetings, the city is discussing a change from a July project construction start to a May project construction start. We will not have a definite start date until a bidder has been selected and a schedule is confirmed with the winning bidder. However, if you use 8th Street regularly it would be wise to start getting to know the alternate routes now just in case we end up with an earlier start date.
8th Street business owners – Please scroll down the Businesses page, we’ve added a detour map you can customize for your own use as well as some other suggestions.
