Construction at Third and Perry streets, along Plum Creek Parkway

As we celebrate our past, the Town is also preparing for the future. As we do, your local government is making investments in infrastructure, and these projects can have varying impacts on commutes, events, and more.

At Third and Perry streets Downtown, the Town is constructing a new roundabout. Once completed, the roundabout will help improve access through that intersection. Construction is expected to last through August.

In preparation for these events, crews will take a break and secure the construction site. While crews will not be working, the site will still be under construction. Please pay extra attention if you take in these events near this intersection.

Along Plum Creek Parkway, crews are working on the bridge over the railroad. To accommodate Fair and Rodeo activity, they will also take a break between July 29 and Aug. 6. Work is expected to wrap up in mid-August.
