Wilcox and Fourth Street are scheduled to be paved prior to the end of June. Additional open cut work will be schedule on the alleyway east of Main Street (north and south of Second Street), First Street (Taylor to the western City Limits), Pine Street (north of Fourth), and University east of Main Street. Dates for this work have not been set as of the date of this publication as the City is still working out the scope of services and associated costs with the contractor.
  • Sanitary Sewer Manhole Repairs: The contractor has begun working on the manhole repairs that are required in pavement areas. The contractor will be working on 15-20 manholes at a time. This work will involve temporary closures around the manholes that could last up to seven (7) days to allow for cure time on the concrete collars.
