The first phase of construction begins today on Hickory Street for the “Grand Street” project.
Crews will begin with underground utility work that continues through March, including replacing water, wastewater and electric lines. Pavement work will begin in late March. From March through November, crews will replace the sidewalks and install various beautification projects between the Square and Bell Avenue.
The city’s contractor has planned that most of the work the first week will be done overnight, from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., to limit impact on local businesses. After Friday, crews will work from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
A construction schedule for the water line replacement and Denton Municipal Electric’s extension of electric lines will be posted online in December before the work begins in January. Detour routes for lane and street closures will be posted during all phases of construction.
