Pecan Street

  • Pecan Street, between Abram and Main streets, is closed to through traffic until early November. This closure is necessary to allow for the installation of new sewer lines and improvements to the stormwater drainage system. Visitors to the area can access the parking lot located between Pecan and Oak Street from Oak Street.
  • With the completion of the new ADA-compliant ramp located at the southeast corner of City Hall and the closure of Pecan Street, the temporary ADA ramp located at the northeast corner of Abram and Pecan Streets has been removed. A pedestrian detour is in place to direct visitors from the parking lot west of City Hall to the north entrance of City Hall.

Cooper Street between UTA Boulevard and Main Street

  • The outside lane of northbound Cooper Street will be closed north of UTA Boulevard to Main Street through December 24 to allow for installation of new water line infrastructure. This closure will not affect southbound traffic.
