City Projects

Public Works: Road Painting - On Sunday, May 12, City Public Works crews will begin our yearly in-house road painting. Crews will paint crosswalks, stop bars, turn arrows, and parking stalls throughout town. This work usually takes about two weeks to complete. Crews primarily work at night to lessen the impact on drivers. Please use caution when driving through the work zones.

Safe Routes to School -
The City's Safe Routes to School roadway crossing improvements project began on March 25. City contractors will be working in a few locations around town for this project:
  • North 9th Street between West Franklin Street and the alley to the south
  • Intersection of West Franklin and North 7th Streets
  • Existing pedestrian crossing across Shelton Springs Road, just north of the south driveway for Shelton High School
Well #1 Pipeline Pressurization Project - The City's Well #1 pipeline pressurization project began on February 12. There are a couple of traffic impacts to be aware of with this project:
  • Intersection of North 13th and East K Streets - The project contractor will implement a traffic revision in the inside lane at this intersection to install a new precast valve vault. The revision will be installed every morning at 7 a.m., and the contractor will remove the revision at the end of the day. 
  • Intersection of North 12th and East E Streets - The project contractor will close the intersection of North 12th and East E Streets. Local access in and out will be available.
