Assistance program helps businesses cope with impacts of roadway projects

The voter-approved Regional Transportation Authority plan promises $2 billion in transportation system improvements. Inevitably, though, major roadway construction projects are accompanied by major disruptions for nearby businesses.

The MainStreet Business Assistance Program is a complimentary service funded by the Regional Transportation Authority plan to help business owners establish survival strategies to manage disruptions before and during construction. MainStreet has had a track record of successful results in providing services tailored to individual business needs since 2006.

MainStreet contracts with professional consultants who have years of business experience to help businesses affected by transportation construction projects address potential obstacles and to identify individual challenges and solutions.

MainStreet aids businesses in developing stronger, positive government/private sector relationships, based upon trust, respect, responsiveness, tangible solutions and results.

To date, MainStreet has assisted more than 9,000 businesses.
