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.
