2nd Street Flood Control Project**
3rd Ave. North and 3rd St. North Intersection: Starting Tuesday, July 26, the intersection of 3rd Avenue North and 3rd Street North will close for approximately one week. The closure is necessary for the replacement of the underground utilities and is part of the ongoing flood mitigation work on 2nd Street North. Access to the Library and City Hall on 3rd Street North will be maintained via 1st Avenue North.
1st Avenue and 3rd Street North Intersection: When the work on the intersection of 3rd Avenue North and 3rd Street North is complete, which is anticipated to occur on or around Monday, August 1, the intersection of 1st Avenue North and 3rd Street North will close. This closure will not take place until the intersection of 3rd Avenue N and 3rd Street N is reopened. Once closed, access to the Main Library and City Hall on 3rd Street North will be from 3rd Avenue North. This closure is anticipated to be in effect until the end of September.This work is also part of the in-town flood mitigation projects being completed by the Diversion Authority.
1st Avenue North closed from 3rd St. North to the Red River: Currently, 1st Avenue North from the Red River to 3rd Street North is closed. This stretch of road will remain closed through the summer. This closure is also part of the in-town levees being constructed under the FM Area Diversion Project.
Main Library's west parking lot: The library's west parking lot along 4th Street North now has 13 additional parking spots available for library patrons. Handicapped parking is also available in the library's west lot.
The Library/Civic Center parking lot: Parking in the Library/Civic Center parking lot has been affected by the 2nd Street Flood Control Project. The parking lot along the east side of 3rd Street North (northeast of the Main Library) has a limited number of designated library parking spots. These spots have a 3-hour time limit in order to accommodate as many library patrons as possible each day.
Please note: It is business as usual for the Main Library and staff in terms of hours, events and programs.
During the construction project, pedestrian access to the Main Library will remain the same. Entrances are located along 3rd Street on the east, and along 4th Street on the west side of the Main Library.
We are apologize for any inconvenience.
** Pedestrians are asked to use caution when crossing streets and avenues while the construction project is underway.
