Hazel Street project begins Saturday

Other projects getting finished


Pella —

Other projects completed this year include Broadway and Washington, which included a total reconstruction with a new storm sewer, water service and paving. 

"The project went very well," Buyert said. TK Concrete was the contractor and finished on schedule. 

Norris Asphalt Paving has been awarded a contract for a two-inch Mill and Overlay on East Third from Franklin to Washington, West Third from Franklin to Washington, West Third from University to Peace, Broadway from Adams to Park Lane, Broadway from University to Oskaloosa and the Post Office alley from Broadway to West First. This should begin in September, and Buyert believes that getting in and out of these areas will not be difficult. The asphalt takes only hours to dry, and he believes that a section in front of someone's home could be completed during an average work day. 

Buyert said this has been a good year for road work. The dry weather has helped in this area, though he recognizes the struggle local farmers are facing with the lack of rain. 

Crews continue to work on water mains, patching and recently finished a 12-inch line from Elm to Waterways Drive. 

Looking ahead to winter, Buyert said Public Works' salt bins are full.
