Orders Road Construction | Lane Restrictions
The final decorative concrete to complete the roundabout is scheduled for early morning placement Friday, June 17 and Monday, June 20 and Tuesday, June 21. Concrete work will begin at approximately 5 a.m. and cleanup should be completed by 10 a.m. each day.
The north leg of the roundabout (Haughn Road) will be closed and flaggers will guide motorists through the roundabout and past the work areas. Closing the northbound leg will not inhibit access since Old Haughn road is a redundant route to Orders Road.
Two-way traffic on both roads will be maintained. The construction schedule will be adjusted based on weather conditions and construction obstacles.

Town Center Improvements
Additional Town Center improvements are underway. These improvements include expansion and reconfiguration of the existing public parking lot between Park Street and Grant Avenue. In addition improvements will occur along Park Street, Grove City Road and Grant Avenue between Broadway and the railroad track.
The City’s contractor, Danbert Inc., is beginning sub-surface infrastructure work and construction will continue through the remainder of 2016. While measures are underway to minimize the impact to businesses and the public, restrictions are in place limiting the use of rotating parking areas. Restrictions to traffic on Park Street, Grove City Road and Grant Avenue may arise as the work progresses. Access will be maintained to all local businesses; however access points will vary based on the phase of the work.
Park Street – One Way, Westbound with Pedestrian Access
Park Street, from Broadway to Front Street, will be open to westbound traffic only, beginning Tuesday, May 31 until approximately Friday, July 8. Eastbound traffic will be detoured to either Grove City Road or Grant Avenue. Access will be maintained to all local homes and businesses; however access points will vary based on the phase of work.
Parking options are changing due to the start of construction for Broadway Station, a 120-unit, multi-family development behind City Hall. Visit the Pizzuti Companies website for more information on the project.
