The Town is moving forward with repaving & improving Elm Street. Pepco will be relocating several of its poles along Elm Street this Saturday Jan 21 to allow for the widening of the street to two 10ft lanes when warmer weather allows for paving. Residents and visitors are encouraged to use alternate routes into Downtown Saturday as this utility work may impact traffic on Elm Street. Stay tuned for more updates…

The County’s Department of Public Works & Transportation made a decision to remove the Water Street bus stop, located across from the 7-11 convenience store. As of Monday, January 23, 2017, this bus stop will longer be active for boarding and drop offs for “The Bus” passengers. The Bus passengers can still access transit services on Judges Drive at the Courthouse Circle and on Elm Street near Governor Oden Bowie Drive. Yesterday, DPW&T posted public notices at the Water Street bus stop to provide their patrons with sufficient notification about the change. By Friday, January 20th, the bus shelter will be removed and the bus stop sign will be removed from the Water Street bus stop. In the meantime, DPW&T will continue to work with the SHA and the M—NCPPC on their pedestrian improvement projects on Water Street, including moving the Water Street crosswalk further down towards Judges Drive.
