Due to the inclement weather over the last two days, officials say the opening of Main Street in Downtown Brighton will be delayed.
“We anticipate it being opened to vehicular traffic early next week,” stated a press release. “Once this portion of Main Street is opened, Phase 2 of the project will begin, which will require a full close of Main Street from Hyne to S. Second.”
Officials say that while they are “anxiously awaiting” the completion of Phase 1 and the opening of the road, they need to ensure that all the work is completed to the highest standards.
“Once Main Street is open from Grand River to Hyne, there will still be detail work being completed on the sidewalks and in the millpond park area, such as irrigation, lighting, electrical, etc. This will result in intermittent closure of the parallel parking on Main Street,” stated the release.
“We are looking forward to welcoming everyone downtown on Thursday and Friday, August 25 and 26 for our street warming party, The Main Event. It will be a celebration of the completion of Phase 1 of the project and will include a live band at the AMP on Friday night and then live music and other activities along Main Street on Saturday.”

“As always, The City of Brighton would like to thank everyone for their patience and support while we complete the Main Street Streetscape project. We are excited to share the end result of a beautiful Main Street that will be enjoyed by everyone year round.”
“We will keep everyone updated when we have a firm opening date.”
