Barstow Street Construction in Downtown Eau Claire

The South Barstow Street reconstruction project has begun for the summer of 2013. It's a nearly $2 million project that will include new sidewalks, concrete pavement, new boulevards, planting areas, bump-outs at intersections and mid-block, and an irrigation system and upgraded sound system.

Pedestrian access to businesses on South Barstow Street will be maintained during construction.

The work is planned to be completed and open to traffic by August 16, 2013, with work on the boulevards to be completed by September 13, 2013.

Check here for updates and information.

Please support your local Downtown businesses!  We will be looking forward to a beautiful, new South Barstow Street in the fall!
