Summer 2020 Downtown Construction
Downtown street construction has begun and will focus on Park to Callender on 2nd Street. Demolition is underway at the intersection of Callender near 3rd Street, and will work North toward 2nd Street, before turning onto 2nd Street. The intersection of 2nd and Calendar Streets will be open until work commences in that location. See the attached traffic control map. Access to local businesses will be maintained throughout construction.
Public meetings on this construction project will be held weekly Thursdays at the 2nd Street Bistro at 8:30 am and plans will be taped up in the corner window at 2nd Street and the alley. Thank you Brian for the use of your space during this project!
Utility line replacement will begin on Callender, from 2nd to 3rd, with water lines and manholes as the first focus. Sidewalk removal on 2nd from Callender to Lewis will begin and include more storm drains at the end of the project, so the water drainage near the Post Office will be much improved. No more huge puddles!

The main focus area of the project has been 12 blocks in downtown - Park Street to Geyser and 3rd Street to B Street. The planned improvements for this year will update aging infrastructure while maintaining the character and historical details that make Livingston special. 2020 work on this downtown area will focus on reconstruction of the core of downtown Livingston infrastructure. Specifically, 2nd Street from Park Street to Lewis Street (excluding Callender intersection) and Callender Street between 2nd Street and 3rd Street. The project will be coordinated as much as feasible with the First Interstate Bank reconstruction project.
Project activities will include: Replacement of old sewer, water, and storm drains; installation of new downtown area sidewalks with current Americans with Disabilities Act standards, improving accessibility and safety for everyone; and, new street surfaces after all other construction activities have been completed.
The City of Livingston partnered with TD&H Engineering to create a Capital Improvement Plan for the future of our downtown, one that will make our city center safe, vibrant, and family-friendly for years to come.
The project will continue through the summer and could go into the month of October. Stay up to date with construction updates at: www.improvelivingston.com
