City 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 said.
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.
