The 2019 Washington Street Reconstruction started Monday, July 8, and is scheduled to be completed by Monday, October 28. The project will be constructed in four phases. Traffic control signs will be posted prior to and during construction notifying residents and businesses of the proposed construction and/or detour routes.
Phase I and II will reconstruct Washington Street between Wood Street and Clara Street and will result in the closure of the Union Pacific and Canadian National railways at-grade crossings for approximately 25 days. During Phase I and II, Washington Street will remain open to two-way traffic between Arbor Avenue and Wood Street.
