Downtown Detour Intersection Work Nearly Complete!

Posted on September 22, 2023 at 4:30 PM by Nicole Collingbourne

This week, the contractor has nearly completed the installation of the brick pavers at the intersection of Spring Street and Main Street. The contractor is planning to install the polyermic sand over the weekend (weather pending) to secure the joints in the brick. Once the sand is installed, the intersection will be reopened. 


Detour routes remain established for both eastbound and westbound traffic around the intersection. Accommodations will be made for downtown businesses to receive deliveries during the detour. The Village of Cary appreciates your patience during this phase of construction.

  • Westbound traffic will be directed onto Jandus Road after crossing the railroad tracks, westward on Cary Street to High Road, and back on to W. Main Street.
  • Eastbound traffic will be directed south onto High Road, eastward on Cary Street, southeast on Jandus Road, and northeast on Jandus Cutoff Road to Route 14.

Next week, the contractor will be working at the intersection of High Road and Main Street installing the brick paver crosswalk. This work will include pavement removal, concrete base, asphalt leveling, and brick installation. The brickwork at High Road and Main street is expected to take approximately two weeks. Two way traffic at the intersection of High Road and Main Street will be maintained during construction.
