Main Street Reconstruction



Main Street was last reconstructed in the early 1990’s and the roadway elements have reached their useful life. Abandoned trolley tracks, utility cuts, age, and local drainage issues have led to the deterioration of Main Street, requiring a full-depth reconstruction. The new construction will occur from South Main Street (Rte. 146) to Chestnut Street and within the existing roadway width from curb to curb.  New streetscape features are now included in the project, with sidewalk, lighting, and street furniture upgrades being incorporated into the design.

The reconstruction project has been approved by South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) for Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LoTCIP) funding.


You may have noticed that construction within the project area had already begun. The Town has been working with the utility owners (water and natural gas) to replace existing infrastructure prior to the roadway reconstruction. This coordination will ensure the longevity of the Town’s efforts to rehabilitate the roadway. Preliminary design for the reconstruction has begun. There will be several opportunities for residents, business owners, and those interested in the project to review draft designs in the upcoming months. We'll update this webpage with new updates under the How to Get Involved Section.

Additional funding has been made available for the project, and the Town was able to increase the scope of the work to address most of the streetscape features along Main Street.  Due to the scope increase, the construction schedule has not yet been finalized.
