What's Up Downtown?

Downtown Icon.FINAL2

In partnership with Wright County, the Downtown Roadway & Pedestrian Improvements Project includes improvements to River Street between Locust and Highway 25, Walnut Street between River Street and Broadway Street, and Broadway Street between 500 feet east of Jerry Liefert Drive to Pine Street (TH 25).

The improvements along River and Walnut Street include several pedestrian safety enhancements, including the addition and widening of sidewalks, traffic calming measures, flashing pedestrian signals, way-finding signage and lighting improvements. Parking enhancements and underground placement of utility lines are also components of the project.

The reconnection of Walnut to River Street and the widening of the turning radius at the northwest corner of Broadway and Pine Streets are proposed to improve vehicular travel in this area of downtown.

Construction started in the middle of August 2023. Last month (November 2023) crews filled the medians and sidewalk gaps with gravel for the winter season, with final pavement scheduled for 2024.

The final layer of street paving, utility under-grounding, landscaping, and striping will occur in 2024. The area between the sidewalk and curb will be partially filled in with gravel and/or soil for the winter and completed in summer 2024.  Streetscaping in the medians will also be completed in 2024.
