Detours and closures end tonight for Huntsville's Diggin' Downtown project

Detours and closures end tonight for Huntsville's Diggin' Downtown project

Posted: 2022-06-17 12:13:51 By: thebay

The Town of Huntsville announced this morning that the Diggin’ Downtown road closures and detours will lift by end of day today, and Caroline Street will be reopened to two-way traffic, as construction enters the fifth and final stage of the project.

Construction crews will be present in the downtown core over the next several weeks to complete Stage 5 requirements. Sidewalk and curb work, streetscaping elements and preparation for the final lift of asphalt will be achieved throughout June and July.

Temporary lane closures may be in place from time to time as crews address the work, even after the asphalt is completed.  

For the final lift of asphalt, a full road closure of Main Street from the bridge to Lorne Street is required. To mitigate the disruption to traffic and impact on the downtown core, the work will be completed in the evening hours starting at 7:00pm and over-night until 7:00am. It is anticipated that crews will need 1 or 2 nights to complete paving activities. The exact schedule and dates for this closure has yet to be determined.
