A popular destination where locals & visitors gather to shop, eat and enjoy downtown East Troy, the East Troy Village Square is now undergoing work in the long-awaited Main Street Construction project.
While downtown business owners are excited for the finished product, they want customers to know they remain open while work is ongoing for the next few weeks.
Village officials said the project is expected to bring new life into downtown, but patience will be required while work continues.
The Village will maintain entrances and access to the East Troy Village Square businesses at all times as they work on construction items in this section of Main Street.
Diagonal parking and square parking will be maintained, although at times, some parking spaces may be closed due to construction.
Parking is also available in the East Troy Municipal Lot on the southeast corner of the East Troy Village Square. The lot is adjacent to the East Troy Area Historical Society, 2106 Church St.
Additionally, street parking is available on Main Street, Division Street and Union Street.
