The Date Street Business Loop Roundabout Project will begin construction on Monday, January 9th, 2023. Phase 1 is expected to last about two months, through March 2023. The following traffic impacts will be in place: 

  • Traffic on North Date Street will be reduced to one lane each direction (northbound and southbound) and will be shifted to the west (southbound) lanes from north of New School Road to Ash Street.
  •  Local Traffic on Smith Street will be detoured to 9th street.
  •  Local traffic on New School Road will be detoured to Barton Street.

 Motorists are encouraged to use extra caution in the construction zone, obey lower posted speed limits, and allow extra time to reach their destinations. Regular work hours will be 7 A.M to 5 P.M. Monday-Friday, although the contractor may work longer hours or on weekends as needed.

Due to the construction impact on the school transportation system, please expect bus service delays for up to 15 minutes past your normal drop off and pick up times.
