The white border represents the EID Service Area: Parcels within the EID Boundaries fund our work through an annual assessment levied on tax bills. Properties that front Main Street pay a higher rate, commensurate with the additional services they receive.

Alternative Routes:
Motorists are advised to be aware of construction signs, follow posted detour routes, and exercise caution while driving near any construction zones. Please plan for potential delays and consider alternative routes if possible.

Alternative Parking Options:
Please be advised that posted limits are not enforced after 5 PM weekdays and on weekends. For more parking options visit our Parking & Transportation webpage.

Main Street Reconstruction:
The City of Evansville Engineering Department is leading the Main Street Reconstruction Project. The project began in 2023 and included rebuilding the driving lane of the 200 and 300 Blocks of Main Street. Concrete replaced the existing brick in the driving lane. The project also repaired miscellaneous spaces in the parking lane where brick has been damaged or is missing. The Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District (EID) worked with the City of Evansville to communicate the project timeframe and its impact on consumer and visitor experiences. Future blocks of Main Street will be reconstructed in the coming years.
