Construction has begun on the City of Brookings asphalt paving project with Bowes Construction, Inc. as the general contractor. The project includes milling off the top layer of asphalt from the street and placing new asphalt pavement. The contractor anticipates they will be working on the following streets starting August 10, 2021 for the duration of approximately three weeks, depending on weather:
- 3rd Street between Medary Avenue and 17th Avenue
- 4th Street between 14th Avenue and 15th Avenue
- 8th Street between 14th Avenue and 20th Avenue
- 20th Avenue between 6th Street and 8th Street
- Larson Park parking lot
The City’s contractor is asking that vehicles do not park on these streets during the milling and paving work and drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes during construction. Vehicles that are parked on the street during the milling and paving construction will be subject to towing at the property owner’s expense. In most instances, these streets will be open to traffic during this process, but lanes and lane widths may be reduced at times. Additionally, the Larson Park parking lot will be closed to all traffic and parking for approximately three weeks for reconstruction. The City of Brookings would like to remind the public to be cautious when driving or walking through the project area, especially around work areas under construction. We appreciate everyone’s patience during the project.
