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 June 14, construction begins on North 3rd from Pine to Walnut Street. Construction has been completed on Walnut between North 1st and North 6th except at the intersections of North 4th and North 5th.

Construction continues at the intersection of Cedar and North 3rd.
