Juneau’s Main Street has opened to traffic on a smooth new asphalt surface that one driver described as “beautifully done.”
Two blocks of Main Street have been closed to traffic since mid-April as crews installed underground utilities, and replaced water, sewer and storm drains.
The street opened to downhill traffic only on Thursday.
The current phase of the project includes traffic islands, landscaping and a sidewalk canopy.
The project is to be complete by mid-August.
Buses will be on the road by Monday.
