Phase 1 of the North 2nd Street construction project will begin May 1. Crews will begin work on Parish Ave. and work west toward Canal Ave. Following Roosevelt High School graduation ceremonies, Phase 2 of the project will resume from Canal Ave. to Greeley Ave.
The Town hired Concrete Express, Inc. as General Contractor to oversee this major improvement project. The project will cost approximately $1.3 million, and will include replacement of a major water main, removal and replacement of concrete sidewalk, curb and gutter, and replacement of the asphalt roadway, plus striping. Xcel Energy will relocate street lights to accommodate sidewalk improvements.
Recognizing the need for improved traffic and pedestrian safety, Town Council designated this project as a goal for 2016 and authorized TTG Engineers to prepare a design. A public open house was held in October 2016 to discuss the design and receive comments. The patience of town residents during this process is greatly appreciated.
