English Road will be fully shut down between Elm Street and Lindsay Street beginning early Monday morning, July 29 to update underground utility infrastructure.
The roadway will reopen during the High Point Furniture Market and subsequently closed again until work is completed. The City expects this project to be completed in early 2020.
These underground utility improvements will include water, stormwater, sewer and electrical updates to the over 100-year-old infrastructure. This part of the effort is to revitalize and develop the downtown area surrounding the new BB&T Point stadium.
