Construction is scheduled to begin next Tuesday on street and sidewalk work in Electric City.

Updates on the project will be available at as well as Electric City's Facebook page found under "City of Electric City Municipal Government."

Starting Sept. 3, construction will begin with the pulverization of asphalt along Western and Grand avenues.

"There will be road closures, and intermittent water shutoffs as we proceed on the projects." an Aug. 26 post on the city's Facebook page says.

In July, the city accepted a bid of $1,124,900.96 from Wheeler Excavation of Benton City, Washington for four projects:

• replacing a water main along Grand Avenue for $231,322.49,

• paving the fire station parking lot for $79,333.48,

• rebuilding Grand and Western avenues and sidewalks for $549,332, paid for with a grant from the state's Transportation Improvement Board and a $33,000 match from the city; and

• the sidewalk project along Coulee Boulevard and near city hall, totalling $264,913, also paid for with TIB money, plus a $16,000 match from the city.

The work is scheduled to continue into December.
