Full depth patching in the area is expected to be complete on or by Friday, September 12th.

The contractor will maintain one northbound, one southbound and a turn lane throughout the project.  Traffic delays should be expected.  Motorists are advised to take an alternate route if they are able.

Work on the Brady St Sewer and Resurfacing Project is coming to a close.  Be on the lookout for changing traffic control as work progresses on these items.

  • Mobile sealing operations are planned for mid-week next week, which means there will be rolling traffic control.  Two lanes will remain open at all times.
  • Sanitary sewer lining is tentatively scheduled to be performed in the overnight hours between 3rd and 4th Streets the week of August 28th.  Work will be performed in the middle lane for one night only.

 With work substantially complete, there are a few remaining items yet to be scheduled before the project is officially complete.  These items will require minimal lane reductions and all, once scheduled, should be complete in seven days or less.

  • Water service repairs at 7th Street (not part of project scope, discovered during project completion).
  • Warranty work on sidewalks at 5th St and other locations.
  • Warranty work on asphalt near 14th St.
