The next phase of the Downtown Reconstruction Project is scheduled to begin in the early morning of this coming Monday, March 14. The next phase will include Salem Avenue between Howard Street and 1st Street, and Howard Street between Salem Avenue and Ashland Avenue. This includes the intersection of Salem Avenue and Howard Street, as well as the half block on Howard south of Salem Avenue. Once the street closure is complete, City staff will work to remove assets from these areas, including benches, signage, streetlights, and trash receptacles. A temporary construction fence will be erected between the sidewalk and streets, allowing for pedestrian traffic on the sidewalks and access to businesses to continue. It is anticipated that this next phase of construction will be completed in June 2022, pending any unforeseen delays.
