Construction is set to begin Monday, April 3rd, weather permitting, and will be ongoing through fall. While this project is necessary and unavoidable for our community to address needed underground utility improvements, efforts are being made to minimize the impact to our businesses whenever possible. This includes making sure that tourists, patrons, tenants, vendors, distributors and delivery truck drivers will still have reasonable accessibility to get to the downtown businesses, the riverfront, Kwik Star and the Post Office. During the interim phase of the project, through April and May, the Main Street road closure will be limited to a shorter span of Main Street, largely in front of Kwik Star and our riverfront. This will allow for more accessibility through downtown and less disruption to the business district during this time. As we move beyond the interim phase, likely at the end of May/ early June, Main Street will be closed to both lanes of traffic from the intersection of Main, B and 3rd Streets through to the riverfront.
Accessibility into McGregor: Traffic into McGregor will only be accessible to traffic via Business 18 (top of the hill), the Great River Road or Eagle Drive/Cemetery Hill. From any of these entry points, Main Street will be open until the intersection of Main, 3rd Street and B Street, as shown on the map. --> Incoming traffic on Hwy 18/76 (from Marquette) will be prohibited.
