Despite discussion, street remains open for concerts
Main Street Live traffic original
Lisa Hobbs photo Hundreds of vehicles are being funneled past Main Street Live every Friday night. Traffic has been reduced to one center lane rather than closing that section of street completely. A manned crosswalk is being used to ensure safe passage for pedestrians.
The road has not closed during the Main Street Live summer concert series. Alderman Steve Harvey made the suggestion to close that section of Main Street and detour traffic through West Colville Street to prevent traffic from passing Security Federal Savings Bank, the location of the music venue. Harvey asked during a Board of Mayor and Aldermen session why his option wasn’t tried.
