The project, being completed by Martam Construction, Inc., should take about three weeks. There might be temporary lane closures during the day as well as construction traffic on First Street. The parking space designated for disabled drivers on the east side of First Street will not be available during construction. This space will be removed and relocated to the new parking lot upon completion.

Motorists and pedestrians are asked to pay special attention to roadway conditions, equipment and workers when driving on First Street, drive slowly and heed directions from the construction crews.
