The city is encouraging drivers to use alternative routes as major construction continues on Main Street. Traffic is reduced to one lane in both directions along Main at Interurban Street as well as at Greenville Avenue, according to the city. The lane reduction at Interurban is expected to last six months, while the lane reduction at Greenville should be complete in two to three months.

From Feb. 8-9, Main will be completely closed to traffic between Interurban and McKinney as crews construct a storm sewer crossing.


The enhancements are part of the city’s Main Street redevelopment project, which kicked off in September and is expected to continue through the end of 2021 or beginning of 2021. Street improvements will pave the way for installation of wider sidewalks with new lighting, picnic tables, benches, bike racks, enhanced landscaping and new open space, according to the city.

Overall, construction on Main is in Phase 1 of 5. The first phase is expected to continue until April and is intended to replace utilities and pavement on the north side of Main as well as the west side of Greenville.
