Project FAQs

1. Will access to my property be impacted during construction?

We will make every effort to have as little impact on property access as possible during construction. When needed, we will place temporary all-weather surfaces to ensure access. Additionally, temporary detours around the construction zone may be necessary to perform work safely.

2.  Why is the city proposing on-street parking along Andrews Street?

TUPPS Brewery is looking to develop the property west of Andrews Street and north of Green Street. On-street parking is proposed to support this economic development and minimize impediments to the flow of traffic.

Streets & Traffic Study

Goal: To identify various long-term roadway alignments and improvements in anticipation of redevelopment within the study area. We are interested in establishing roadway connections between S.H. 5 / McDonald St. and Airport Dr. while minimizing the impact on existing residential development. Once complete, this study will allow the city to prioritize roadway improvement projects.
