says businesses are suffering the most
The city issued a statement Tuesday asking motorists to be understanding
during this period of construction and to remember the hardships the
businesses downtown face every day.
"Many of us become frustrated with the dust or parking and simply
choose not to patronize the businesses downtown," A city spokespersons
said. "If this continues, it could cause us to lose some of those
merchants. We ask that you continue to support these businesses in
an effort so see them through the construction. If we do not support
them now, they may not be there for us to support later," the spokesperson
Parking has been provided offstreet and the city encourages people
to continue to patronize these downtown businesses.
Changes at High and Pine streets intersection
Throughout the course of construction, the stoplights at the High
and Pine streets intersection will be removed. Stop signs will be
placed on both North and South Pine Street.
The reason for this change has to do with the control box that is
located at South Pine Street. This box must be removed in order to
accommodate construction in the sidewalk.
New traffic lights will be installed at the end of the project at
all intersections, including this one.
