Downtown Street Improvements and Plaza Project

Progress continues on the development of conceptual designs to improve streets through downtown and to create a 4th Street Plaza.

The project is part of the Downtown Master Plan Update, approved by the City Council on October 16, 2018.

Three key elements provide a framework to make the downtown area more pedestrian friendly.

Elm Street 
(1st Street to South County Road)
Construction is anticipated to start  late summer 2022 with estimated completion in April 2023.

The project will reconstruct Elm Street into a concrete roadway, including: 

  • parallel parking 
  • sidewalk 
  • storm drain
  • street lighting
  • traffic signal improvements (5th/Elm)

Main Street 

(3rd Street to South County
Construction is anticipated to start in Q4 of 2023.

  • sidewalk widening
  • removal of parking spaces
  • intersection improvements
  • traffic signal improvements (Main/South County)

4th Street Plaza   

Design of the Pedestrian Plaza is ongoing. The plaza will serve as a pedestrian connection between Elm and Main streets and provide a community gathering space.

Notes Concerning Construction Activity


Safety in the project area is of utmost importance. Please respect all signs and construction zones and adjust driving speeds to suit the conditions. During the placement and curing of concrete, and while barricades are in place, refrain from touching or impacting the concrete in any way. Avoiding contact with concrete during the curing process will minimize delays in construction.

Construction schedules change for a number of reasons, sometimes with little notice. Please understand there will be changes. We appreciate your patience.
