As work progresses on the first phase of renovations to Linden Street, construction crews will move the focus of the project from the Walnut Street end of downtown Linden Street to the Jefferson Street end over the next few days.

Businesses on Linden Street, Walnut Street, and Old Firehouse Alley are open and will continue to have access at all times.

The intersection of Walnut and Linden Streets, which has been closed to traffic since March, reopened Friday afternoon, April 16.

On Monday, April 19, the south section of the Jefferson and Linden intersection will close to traffic, weather permitting. Through traffic on Jefferson Street will not be affected, and traffic will be able to turn onto Linden north of Jefferson Street toward the River District.

Access to the downtown section of Linden Street will be available from Walnut Street as well as Old Firehouse Alley for pedestrians and bicycles.

The Jefferson/Linden closure will last for several weeks and will allow for improvements to be built at that intersection. After the Jefferson/Linden closure ends, the Walnut/Linden intersection will close again briefly for installation of overhead lights.

All work on Linden Street is expected to be complete by mid-May. Work being performed this spring will substantially reduce impacts when the rest of the Linden Street Renovation project is completed at a later date.
