Below is a link to a map of the street work. The map shows street projects outlined in red.
The reconstruction work is expected to take one to three days and will limit street access. Once that work is finished, toward the end of this week or beginning of the following week, another company (Circle C Paving) will spray road oil on the top of the street. It is essential that nothing is placed on the road surface and that no vehicle is driven on or across the street for 12-24 hours. After this time Circle C will chip seal the street, allowing for a drivable surface.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this work may cause. Please contact city office at 825-4127 if you have any questions.
