First St. Expansion Public Information Meeting

October 27, 2022 : Presented Via Zoom // 6:30-7:30pm

First St. Expansion Project to Begin October 24 | Public Information Meeting October 27

Beginning Monday, October 24, you will start to see construction activity as crews and equipment move in along First Street between Coit Road and Custer Road. With the opening of the new Walnut Grove High School moving forward by 12 months sooner than anticipated to the 2023-2024 school year, both the Town and the contractor for the road project have committed to having two lanes of new concrete roadway paving complete and open to traffic prior to the first day of school. Opportunities to accelerate further sections of the project will continue to be evaluated and executed wherever possible throughout the duration of construction. The project is anticipated to be fully completed in the spring of 2024, ahead of the original school opening timetable.

The Town will host a virtual public information meeting on Thursday, October 27 at 6:30 p.m. to provide residents with an overview of the project, the general construction timeline, and staff contact information. Time will also be allocated for questions at the end of the presentation. If you would like to submit a question prior to the meeting, please email your question(s) to Lindy Higginbotham, P.E., at  To check the status of this project, visit Stay connected for more updates related to this project and others using our Capital Improvement Program Dashboard
