Main Street Downtown Construction Notice

This notice provides property owners, residents, and merchants along and adjacent to Main Street in downtown, from Norcross Lane to 5th Street with general information related to the upcoming street construction project.

The project will improve Downtown Oakley by constructing new curb, gutter, sidewalks, landscaped medians, as well as install new street lighting, trees, a new traffic signal at Main/Norcross, pedestrian crossing light system on Main Street at 2nd and 4th street, and finally, resurface Main Street.

In an effort to complete this improvement project as expeditiously as possible, while also minimizing construction impacts to the Downtown merchants, a new public parking lot has been constructed between the Main Street properties and the railroad tracks which is available for employee and customer parking, in addition to loading/unloading and truck delivery for the merchants.

Construction work is scheduled to start March 20th and anticipated to be completed by end of October. Please keep in mind that construction is weather dependent and dates are subject to change.

Electronic message boards will be posted on Main Street at strategic locations. Please look for these signs for updated project information including working hours and dates. You will receive further information on the project as related to your property in the coming weeks as some of the work will be performed at night to better accommodate the Downtown merchants.

“No Parking” signs will be posted 72 hours prior to the start of work. The signs will indicate the dates and times during which parking is prohibited. Cars parked within prohibited areas will be towed in order for work to progress in an effective manner. There will be flaggers and other workers directing traffic to ensure both the safe passage of all residents as well as the safety of our contractor. Please expect some delays, and choose alternate routes, if possible. Emergency Vehicle Access will be accommodated at all times.

We recognize that any construction work in this area will impact traffic conditions. Though temporary impacts are inevitable, we are taking all appropriate steps to create the least amount of inconvenience to the surrounding areas while performing this important project. All work will be sequenced to make the site as safe and accessible as possible during construction. Our construction team is ready to respond and address any of your questions:
