Newsflash Graphics - Construction Announcement

Bowes Construction will be starting construction work on the second phase of the Jefferson Avenue Drainage Improvement Project, July 26th.  The project area is primarily on Jefferson Avenue from Olwein Street to Morningside Drive with some work on side streets off Jefferson Avenue as well. The project was designed by Banner Associates and the work will include new storm sewer pipe and inlets, curb & gutter repair, ADA curb ramps, and asphalt pavement replacement. 

The construction work is estimated to be complete by mid-September, which will depend on weather or other issues causing delays.  The project area will be closed to through traffic during the project and detour traffic shall use alternate routes.

We would like to remind the public to be cautious when driving or walking near the project area, especially around work areas under construction.  The City would like to thank the public for their patience during the project.  Questions may be directed to Banner Associates at 605-692-6342.
