A portion of two downtown Enterprise roads will be closed starting Monday, Jan. 9 due to a demolition project.

The southbound lane of South Main Street, from West College Street to Grubbs Street, will be closed starting Monday, Jan. 9 from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Cars will be rerouted down East College Street to South Edwards Street to East Grubbs Street.  Semi-trucks will be guided through by law enforcement officers. This closure is expected to last through Wednesday, Jan. 11.  West College Street will be closed to all traffic from Main Street to the railroad tracks Jan. 9-20.  Demolition crews will be using this area to stage the necessary equipment. Enterprise Police will be on scene to direct traffic. 

“We ask drivers to avoid the area if possible because it will be congested with equipment related to the project,” Enterprise Police Chief Michael Moore said. “If you must be in the area, plan for extra time to get through and follow the commands of the officers on scene.” 

Businesses in the area will be open during the demolition project. Pedestrians are reminded to use the sidewalks and to only cross Main Street in designated crosswalks.

“Our downtown businesses will still be operating as normal and we’d just like to remind everyone to ‘pardon our progress’ as we work through this demolition project,” Main Street Executive Director Mariah Montgomery said. “We hope that people will still come downtown to shop small and support our local businesses.” 

Barricades will be put up for safety and the public is reminded to not cross them.  The demolition project will include three structures that were damaged as a result of a fire in October.
