Brown Street Transformation

Work on the reconstruction of Brown Street will begin Feb. 29.

Work on the reconstruction and resurfacing of Brown Street is set to begin Wednesday, Feb. 29.

The project includes complete replacement of the roadway from Wyoming Street to Caldwell Street and resurfacing from Caldwell Street to Irving Avenue. Also included are decorative street lighting, new sidewalks and bike lanes. Some underground utilities, traffic signals and signs will be replaced.

Traffic between Stewart Street and Wyoming Street will be restricted to a single lane in each direction, and on-street parking on will be prohibited. Access to businesses along Brown Street will be maintained. Traffic congestion is expected; to avoid delays, motorists are urged to use Main Street as an alternate route.  

The work plan calls for Brown Street to be closed to traffic between Stewart and Caldwell from early June to mid-August.

Work is scheduled to be complete by the end of November 2012.
