The Cedar Springs Merchants Association reported that Atmos Energy’s street construction on Cedar Springs Road will begin on Monday, Oct. 17.

Association president Scott Whittall said that the work that was originally scheduled for two weeks and would not have been completed in time for the parade is now scheduled to be completed in two or three days.

“We have worked closely with Atmos to shorten the length of construction time,” Whittall said. 

Most of the parking on Cedar Springs Road between Reagan and Throckmorton streets will be blocked daily during construction times from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will be available evenings and early mornings. CSMA is working to make sure signs are posted directing daytime customers to the parking back parking lots.
