This week, contractors are working on finishing street light installation. Once the street lights are installed, Cedar Street will be open to two-way traffic. This should occur by the end of this week. Though there still may be intermittent lane closures for smaller parts of the project, this should be the last major detour for the project.

The right-hand turn lane at Cedar and Dallas will be removed. Instead, the lane will direct northbound traffic in the right lane to merge with traffic in the left. This change will be made in the coming weeks.

Crews are also working on installing park benches, trash receptacles, bike racks and other amenities.
