Town Branch Commons: Construction Updates

The Town Branch Commons (TBC) trail is wrapping up the utility phase of construction. This has been underway since July 2018. During this phase numerous utilities have relocated along the trail’s planned path and the Midland Ave. sanitary sewer upgrade has been completed.

The next phase of construction for the downtown trail project is anticipated to begin by spring 2020 following federal reviews and permit approvals expected this fall.

Throughout the Town Branch Commons trail’s construction, passersby on Midland Ave. and Vine St. will see a variety of components being constructed on the north side of the roadway. Downtown travelers should be prepared for various lane closures along the trail’s route to accommodate construction. We do not expect the complete closure of Vine St or Midland Ave during construction.

We ask for your patience as our city goes through this phase of change. We know construction can be loud, dirty, and an annoyance but we believe the end product will be a downtown core that will be enjoyed by all!
