Main Street Rehabilitation Project Update

Thank you for supporting 
Downtown businesses 
during this construction time! 

The City of Longmont's Pavement Management Program was in Downtown in 2017. Street projects of this program are selected based on system-wide needs and priorities.  Main St. between 3rd Ave. and 9th Ave. was slated for rehabilitation work this spring/summer. 

Main Street conditions to be addressed: 

  • Pavement condition (concrete and asphalt) have become functionally deficient requiring more frequent and costly maintenance techniques
  • Curb ramps at crosswalks must be upgraded to meet Federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards

Visit the City of Longmont site for more information on the city-wide Pavement Management Program, including other areas of Longmont to be improved in 2017.
