Here is the latest from Larry Cort. I have to say if you have not been downtown in awhile, it looks totally different. 90 percent of the sidewalks are in, the top soil is in. It just looks great. This effort will include repaving the City Beach Street/Pioneer Way intersection, patching Dock Street between Pioneer and Bayshore. So come pay us a visit and see for yourself how the downtown has changed for the good.

Paving Monday Night, September 19 – Expect Detours
Strider Construction has confirmed that the paving crew plans to work from about 6:00 pm on Monday evening to about 7:00 am on Tuesday morning. This effort will include repaving the City Beach Street/Pioneer Way intersection, patching Dock Street between Pioneer and Bayshore and paving Pioneer Way from Dock to Ireland and from Ilwaco to Midway. While most of the retail shops and offices will be closed by then, we recognize that many restaurants and bars will still be open and that downtown residents must still be able to get to their homes. Every effort will be made to get people to their destinations using a combination of signs and flaggers although some inconvenience should be expected. The newly paved streets should be ready for use on Tuesday morning.
In order to prepare the City Beach Street intersection for paving, Strider crews will begin removing the existing asphalt starting around noon on Monday. They hope to be able to stage the work so that one-way traffic will be maintained through the intersection. Flaggers will obviously be in place but this may be an excellent afternoon to avoid this intersection if you can.
