Dig In Midland: Downtown’s Streetscape Redevelopment Project

Dig In Midland is a streetscape redevelopment project designed to improve the safety of Main Street and add more space for outdoor events, dining and shopping. Construction began in June 2017 and is expected to be completed in late fall 2017. During construction, you’ll still be able to enjoy everything you love about downtown Midland, including shopping, dining and events.

Claim your stake in the streetscape – help us fund amenities! 

Midland’s downtown streetscape project is nearly finished, but we have a few finishing touches in mind to push this remarkable project over-the-top! We’re asking the public to help us raise funds to add several amenities that will enhance the streetscape for everyone.

It’s true – Main Street is now open from Jerome/M-20 to Cronkright Street!

Please remember: although Main Street is now open to vehicle and pedestrian traffic, final work is still going on to put the finishing touches on the streetscape, including:

  • Some parking areas will be temporarily blocked for installation of the remaining streetlight poles today (11/20) on both sides between Rodd and Cronkright. Tomorrow (11/21) and Wednesday (11/22), poles will be installed on the north side of Main between Rodd and Jerome.
  • Benches and bike racks will be installed at various points along the entire project.
  • Landscaping is complete, but City crews may be on-site in the next few weeks to plant bulbs for next spring.

On behalf of the City of Midland, the Downtown Development Authority, and the Dig In Midland team, THANK YOU for your patience and support throughout this entire project. We hope you love it! Come down to see the work for yourself and patronize our downtown restaurants, retail shops, and businesses, too!
