The City of Woodstock held a ribbon cutting for the Chambers Street Extension on Monday, December 11, 2023. Representatives from Winter Construction and development partner Morris & Fellows gathered with city officials in downtown Woodstock to officially open the newly constructed segment between Arnold Mill Road and Wheeler Street.
Construction on the extension began in July 2023 and opened the week prior to Thanksgiving. "The city challenged Winter to complete the project before the start of the holiday shopping season in downtown Woodstock," stated Mayor Michael Caldwell. "Winter got this project done six weeks ahead of the contracted date of completion and that means a lot to the surrounding businesses as you can imagine."
Closing the segment of East Main Street between Wheeler Street and Arnold Mill Road and constructing this new segment of Chambers Street will improve traffic flow through the Main Street/Arnold Mill Road/Towne Lake Parkway intersection while  providing access to Woodstock's City Center development that will include a 647-car parking deck. The road project also created space for Depot Square, a park and green space on the east side of Woodstock's historic train depot.

"In the same way that the Market Street green and other new pocket parks throughout our city have become meeting places connecting the community, Depot Square is destined to become one of the most popular generation-gathering spots in Woodstock."
The Woodstock Downtown Development Authority has installed seating in Depot Square and plans to install additional amenities in the coming months. For more information on transportation projects in the City of Woodstock, visit
