Road construction is moving along on the 4th Street project in Milbank despite several big rains in recent weeks. “The rain has not really set us behind schedule at all,” noted Milbank city administrator Jason Kettwig. “The rain may have put things behind schedule by a week to 10 days, but we remain on track time-wise with when the concrete is scheduled for.”
Sub-cutting work is about 95% completed according to Kettwig. Gravel work began Tuesday, July 19. Curb and gutter followed by concrete work is slated for the last week in July and first week in August.
In other road construction projects, asphalt will be laid in the coming weeks on the new hospital road between the hospital and the State Auto building.
