The Public Works and Transportation Department is pleased to announce work to improve Eden Road, from Calender Road to US 287, has reached a major milestone. Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2020, construction crews will begin installing box culverts under the roadway. These culverts, which are as wide as the street itself, are part of the stormwater infrastructure system improvements aimed at mitigating flooding concerns in the surrounding neighborhoods.

To accommodate installation of the box culverts, Curry Road will be limited to one-way eastbound traffic only, between Russell Curry Road and Calender Road. The westbound lane will be closed. The lane closure is expected to remain in effect through the end of August 2020.

• Installation of sidewalks
• Renewing water and sanitary sewer lines
• A hike and bike trail
