Drivers navigating the headaches of construction on Davis Street downtown might have reason to groan at the flashing messages: "45% complete."
Work on Davis Street began in June with water main and sewer replacement. That project is complete, but crews are now working to resurface the street and improve the streetscape.
The project began July 29 and was expected to last 13 weeks, or through the end of October, according to the city website. But if you do the math, it looks like it might be even longer. If the project is only 45 percent complete, and it's been seven weeks so far, that means it will last a little more than seven weeks longer--possibly stretching into November.
There is some good news for drivers, however. After construction work on Church Street last summer and construction work on Davis Street this summer, the city's public works department has said it's going to give downtown a break next year.
