For Immediate Release

McDaniel Street streetscape work begins May 19

Starting on Monday, May 19, construction will begin for the McDaniel Street streetscape, between South Avenue and Jefferson Avenue and along Robberson Avenue, between Water Street and Pershing Street. During construction, work may require narrow lanes, temporary lane closures and temporary closures of Robberson Avenue. The contractor for this project (Hamilton and Dad, Inc.) will work to minimize the impact to the public, however, motorists should expect some delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes.

This project will continue the streetscape improvements on McDaniel Street as well as pedestrian enhancements on Robberson Avenue. The project will include the construction of sidewalks, lighting, and gas and water main relocations. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of November. The project is funded through the ¼-Cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax.
