Metro Pavers, Inc. began construction August 27, 2019. The concrete sidewalk improvements have been completed. Weather has delayed the completion of the asphalt milling and pavement striping. The anticipated completion is in November 2019 but the asphalt pavement work is dependent on temperatures well above freezing.
The project will improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians by adding bike lanes to each side of Nickel Street, adding sidewalk, and making crosswalk improvements at US 287. The bike lanes will go from US 287 to Midway Boulevard.
