The new decorative railings for the retaining wall on the north side of the 200 block have been installed and they look fabulous! The installation of the railing really highlights how great West Jackson Street is going to look once construction is complete! Everyone is excited about the new streetscape and we've heard nothing but great things about the work that has been completed to date. New sidewalk and street improvements are on schedule on the south side of the 300 block. Work will continue tomorrow (Saturday, August 10th).

Listed below is the schedule for the remaining sections of the south side of the 200 block of West Jackson Street:

  • Section 3: Week of August 12 - The area in front of Empire Bagel through the future Three Toms Tavern
  • Section 4: Week of August 19 - The area in front of Smith Collective to the end of the construction area near Madison Street

Crews will be removing water valves along both Oak Street and West Jackson Street between Stevens Street and Remington Avenue. The work is expected to take place on Tuesday, August 13th beginning at 6:00 pm and work is expected to be completed by 8:00 am on Wednesday, August 14th.

There will be street closures on both West Jackson and Oak Streets while the work is being completed. The detour map is shown below.

Our #ShopToItWestJack promotion continues through August. We encourage you to continue to support and promote this program.
