During the initial phase of the construction, city staff have been listening to and working with residents on their concerns for traffic safety and mobility. The city encourages residents and visitors to ask construction and traffic control workers, on-site city inspectors, and engineering staff for help when walking, driving or parking within the construction work zone. The city and its contractor are committed to ensure public safety and to help people feel comfortable within the work zone by providing direction or escorting them through an area they are uncomfortable with. Please flag one of them down and let them know how they can help.
Weekly travel advisories on all construction projects throughout the city are provided online at www.cityofmlt.com/208 (traffic alerts). Main Street updates are shared on social media. These updates are provided to keep the community informed about the type of traffic modifications that are in place and where they are located.
Thanks to all residents and visitors for their patience and commitment to driving safely within the work zones. Please continue to drive slowly and cautiously through the work zones and detour routes so that we can maintain a safe and protected environment for all users within the public right-of-way
