The West 7th Multimodal Streetscape Project kicked off with an informational meeting May 30th and a groundbreaking May 31st.

- Work began on the project June 3, 2019.
- The duration of the project is 450 calendar days.
- Anticipated completion date is August 25, 2020.
- Estimated cost for the project is $6.2 million (grant dollars pay for approximately two-thirds cost.)
- The contractor is Sessions Paving Company.
- The project scope is West 7th Street from Beckett Street to High Street.
- West 7th Street will remain open to traffic throughout construction (there will be temporary lane and roadway closures for construction and utility work.)


The project consists of construction of a 10-foot wide, multi-modal facility on the north side of West 7th Street, dedicated bike lanes, 5-foot sidewalks on the south side of West 7th Street, ADA upgrades, crosswalks, signalization, under ground utility relocation, landscaping, road diet, pedestrian amenities and pedestrian lighting. While the construction phase might be inconvenient, the end product will result in an exceptional entry point into historic downtown. This promotes a city that encourages economic growth, invites tourism activity while creating an opportunity for safe, comfortable ADA compliant pedestrian travel. The beautiful landscaping connects with existing historic elements and creates a comfortable and functional space for people to gather during community events.

The contractor plans to begin construction along the north side of West 7th Street first, then shift to the south side.
