The ongoing street re-surfacing in downtown Decatur will continue through Wednesday, Aug. 2, and Thursday, Aug. 3, according the city. The repaving is the final part of road upgrades that have been implemented over the last several months.
This work will be limited to the intersection at College Avenue and South McDonough Street and possibly the intersection of East Trinity Place, East Howard Avenue and North Candler Street, the announcement from the city says. Expect temporary lane closures and traffic delays during the work.
Additionally, pedestrian access will remain open throughout the project area. Sidewalks are generally open and accessible to residents, students and visitors during the final days of construction.
Among the improvements still to be finished are the completion of the North McDonough bicycle lanes, installation of new streetlights on the east side of North McDonough Street, new traffic signals at the McDonough and Candler railroad crossings and sidewalk and trail improvements near the Old Decatur Depot.
