Road work on Main Street in Dexter moving more quickly than expected
The Village of Dexter’s Main Street repaving project is moving along more quickly than expected.
The contractor has completed the first layer of asphalt on the road and the parking areas on Main Street, according to information from Courtney Nicholls, assistant village manager.
Last week, the contractor removed the roadway surface as well as the surface of the parking areas on Main Street and found that the base of the road was in better condition than what was anticipated, Nicholls said in an email update on the project.
Accordingly, the road repairs took less time than was planned, and village officials are adjusting the detours around the work area.

The project was expected to take about six weeks, but at this pace, it might be completed sooner.
One-way traffic heading east will be maintained throughout the project but there will be no parking available on Main Street.
The next step in the process is the addition of colored concrete crosswalks at Alpine, Broad and Baker.
All Main Street businesses remain open during the construction and parking is available in the downtown parking lots and along Alpine, Broad, Central, Forest and Jeffords.
