The council wanted more information concerning the proposed closing of 11 accesses to Main Street.

Due to the size and planning time needed for this large project, it will not be bid or under contract until the fall of 2019 with planned construction to start in the spring of 2020. Because of that, the city is required to specify by resolution a time upon which it is anticipated the contract will be entered into.
