A project designed to improve pedestrian travel downtown will begin April 25. The easternmost lane on Clinton Street from Superior Street to the Freimann Square parking lot will be converted into a sidewalk. The width of the sidewalk will be tripled and will include decorative pavement and trees.

Beginning April 25, the two eastern southbound lanes on Clinton north of Superior will be closed. The lane closures will be in effect for approximately three weeks, weather permitting. The entire project is expected to be complete by mid-June, in time for summer festivals at Headwaters Park

Once the work is finished, the eastern lane of Clinton from the St. Marys Bridge to Superior will become a dedicated left turn lane onto Superior. The project is a key recommendation from the Downtown Blueprint plan to enhance downtown. The cost is $115,000 and is funded through the Downtown CEDIT bond.
