According to City Administrator Jason Kettwig the city is doing everything possible to finish up the work in progress and construction along Highway 12 is moving right along.
Crews are making headway on underground work on the water main and storm sewer from Sixth Street to Third Street. Concrete and finish work will then wrap up that section. Concrete has been poured and work is also nearly complete on the Ninth Street to Sixth Street segment.
Kettwig projects small sections of Highway 12 will open to traffic upon completion, but explained, “opening up small sections depends on the finish work and getting lines painted.”
Progress along Fourth Street has slowed because crews are busy on other areas of the project. Kettwig noted that additional concrete was poured at the Fourth Street and Second Avenue intersection Thursday September 17 which allows the east/west road to be completely opened.
City crews have also been working along Flynn Avenues in preparation for asphalt. That part of the project is scheduled for completion in the next week to 10 days.
