The Brezee Creek Culvert Replacement & East 4th Street Widening Project

Thank you for attending our virtual open house! Though we had hoped to meet with you in person, we are pleased to present this video overview of the project.

As you learned, from now until next spring, the project team will continue to develop design plans for a new bridge, a Highland-Ivy traffic signal, and several corridor improvements. The City is currently seeking funds for construction, which is anticipated to begin in 2022 and last for about 18 months. We look forward to keeping you up to date on our progress!
