FAQs
How long will this project take?
The project began February 6, 2017 and is scheduled to be completed in September 2017.
How many phases are there in this project?
As shown on the Phase Map, there are four phases in this project. Each phase is scheduled to take approximately two months.
Will there be construction work
 overnight or on Saturdays?
There will be construction periodically on Saturdays and on rare occasions overnight. Keep an eye on this page and our City of Granbury social media accounts; we will post an update when a Saturday work day or overnight work is scheduled.
Will I still be able to go downtown and visit downtown businesses?
Yes, the phases of the project are designed so that no more than one intersection is closed at a time, ensuring access to and through the square. Construction crews will also ensure that there is always a way around construction work so that visitors can get into all businesses during business hours.
Will the construction work prevent downtown events and parades?
No, it will not. On the weekend of a parade or large event, construction will stop the Thursday before the event and not begin again until the following Monday. Events will be coordinated around the current phase's construction zones.
Will there be less parking once the project is finished?
No, the completed plan does not remove any parking spots.
Will there be more lighting once the project is finished?
Yes, there will be 17 addition lampposts on the side of the square where the businesses are located once the project is complete. The existing lampposts will all be refurbished. The new lampposts will match the current ones exactly for a cohesive design all the way around the square. There may be temporary lighting in place as the project progresses if necessary.
