Downtown Street Improvements (CBD Project)

Downtown Abilene’s Central Business District streets will undergo a major rehab and reconstruction during 2020 and 2021, a project funded through the 2015 bond package. This work will affect downtown streets spanning from Hickory to Walnut, and North 6th to (but not including) North 1st.

As of December 3rd, construction continues on Hickory Street from North 3rd to North 6th, and on North 5th between Hickory and Pine. Roads are open to thru-traffic with lane closures only.
