Beginning early January 2022, Gibbs & Register will commence a roadway improvement project on Raleigh Street between S. Kirkman Road and Willie Mays Parkway. Once underway, the City's contractor will use this opportunity to construct a shared-use trail and install stormwater drainage along Raleigh Street.

The City's Public Works Department is closely monitoring the global supply chain issue, labor shortages, and increases in the price of materials.

The competitive bid contractor and the City will strive to complete a capital improvement project on time and within budget. However, due to circumstances outside the control of both entities, there may be delays in necessary materials, potential for projects to be completed over budget, and potential delays.

We will continue to work with the community and our stakeholders to address the abovementioned issues and return normalcy to a community.
