Covington Provides High Street Project Update
Information and images from the Village of Covington
PIQUA - Phase 2 is open today! Want to go to shop or eat downtown, then park in the Government Center parking lot like you used to do and walk to your favorite business!
No changes to this phase. The Village is aware of the issues with vehicles running stop signs in this area and police are actively watching that area. We cannot stop everyone, but we will continue to watch the situation as best as we can.
Open today (July 29) with some concrete work to be completed over the next weeks near the intersection of Wright/High. The Village Parking lot is again open from High Street and available to be used. On street parking is available in Phase 2, but there is not any striping yet, so please park with caution.
Phase 3 is under construction now. Sidewalks are going in this week along with driveway approaches. Parking for Above and Beyond Salon and Ellaina Rose Floral Design is again available on Wright Street. Covington Savings and Loan will still be accessed from Main Street to the alley into their parking lot. Bridges-Stocker Fraley Funeral Home can be accessed from Pearl Street to their parking lot. Y’alls Country Club can be accessed from US36.
The last phase (which has always been planned but isn’t highly advertised) will be the final touches including the final asphalt layer, benches, signage, striping, and light poles. This phase will include temporary closures related to maintenance of traffic for the areas that are being worked on. No large-scale closures are scheduled for this phase.
As the project continues to move forward we will continue to share the information we obtain from ODOT and the project contractor. For more information on the project, please go to the Village website here - https://www.villageofcovington.com/.../high-street-project.
