North Main Road Diet


  • Reinstating the current four-lane configuration will cost $35,000. 
  • The proposed project will restripe North Main from the north side of Helman Street north to Jackson Road (railroad tracks) reconfiguring 4-lanes into three-lanes. 
  • There will be one thru lane in each direction with a center turn lane.  The center turn lane allows cars to turn left without impeding traffic flow. 
  • Road Diet will increase the peak travel time thru the project area by an estimated 22 seconds. 
  • This is a projected one year pilot project.  Work was completed in October 2012. Originally this project was to have a three month time frame, however, after citizen input the time frame was extended to one year.
