Street work moving along
Concrete work continues at a steady pace and asphalt will begin to be laid after the Fourth of July, according to Wayne Johnson, Rugby street improvement project inspector with Advanced Engineering.
As of June 18, more than 12,000 feet of curb and gutter have been installed along with new driveway aprons, valley gutters and sections of sidewalk.
Milling – grinding down concrete – was expected to be completed late last week, Johnson said.
A portion of Country Road is getting a lot of attention from road crews as of late. Curb and gutter installation, lowering sections of road for proper drainage, and eventually paving, is scheduled.
The first block west of N.D. Highway 3 along Fourth St. S.W. is also on schedule to get extensive repairs, including replacing a gravel base, adding fabric liner and than four inches of asphalt. That section of the street has had a history of breaking up due to a high water table.
Residents, for the most part, have been understanding of the street work, which has caused some inconvenience for motorists and residences. Johnson reports a number of people handing out compliments for the work already completed. “And those who have brought up concerns, have done so in a courtesy manner,’ he said.
