Old West Main Street Update:
The rain impacted the Contractor’s schedule this week. The Contractor was successful in implementing the closure of Old West Main all the way up to TH 61 (Stage 1B) on Tuesday; however, the progress of the new concrete work has been delayed. The Contractor was successful in installation of some of the new curb on Thursday, with one more day of curb work required. The new concrete pavement is expected to take three days to complete and scheduled for mid-next week. The tentative reopening date for Stage 1B, weather and progress dependent, is Friday, September 10th.
Due to the rain, the Contractor was not able to complete any new service work this week and goal is to focus on these first thing next week. Immediately following the completion of the services will be the new storm sewer starting within the Jackson Street intersection and heading east. The schedule shows three more weeks of utilities split between one week of services and two weeks of new storm sewer.
