City, Staff, and Council, in collaboration with ISG and JJD determined an extension for the work on the 100 block would be beneficial to the project and community. Therefore the 100 block construction will not begin until Spring 2022. Work this year will be completed into the Vine Street intersection and will be paved, except for necessary locations in the Vine Street intersection where temporary measures will be coordinated to provide pavement through winter.
