[ARCHIVED] Dig In Midland Streetscape Construction Begins June 5

June 1, 2017 – Hang on to your hard hat!  The City of Midland’s downtown streetscape redevelopment project, Dig In Midland, digs into construction beginning Monday, June 5.


(For a larger map, click here.)

Beginning Monday, Main Street will be closed to vehicle traffic from Gordon Street to Rodd Street. McDonald Street will be closed from Larkin Street to Ann Street. The Tridge and Farmers Market area will be accessible via Gordon, Ashman, and Rodd Streets. The intersection at Ashman and Main will remain open to traffic through the first week of construction; however, plan on intermittent closures at that intersection as work progresses.

In the first week, crews will begin removing the road surface and that area of the sidewalk from the planter boxes to the curb. This includes removal of street trees, traffic signals, and streetlights. Underground sanitary sewer lateral repairs will take place through the entire 3-block construction zone during the street shutdown.

Storefront sidewalk areas will be removed last as the construction process continues. Sidewalks will remain open as much as possible in each block during construction to allow pedestrian traffic to local businesses.

A staging area for Fisher Contracting will be designated in the public parking lot off Ann Street, closest to the rail trail, between Rodd and Wyman/McDonald. This parking area will be off limits to public parking for the duration of the construction project. To see a map of the staging area, click here

Parking is encouraged on the open portions of Main Street, on side streets, and in the many public parking lots throughout the district.
