Torn up area scheduled for November completion
Last updated 9/25/2019 at 9:48am
Construction continues in Electric City, where more than a million dollars in street, sidewalk and water projects on Western Avenue, Coulee Boulevard, and Grand Avenue are underway.
"Crews have successfully pulverized the asphalt and installed most of the stormwater facilities," a Sept. 19 update on the city's website, http://www.electriccity.us stated.
Crews will continue stormwater facility work through this week, and water main construction should begin today (Sept. 25) to be completed the second week of October. Residential water services are scheduled to be installed beginning Oct. 14, the site notes. That should take about a week.
In the meantime, curbing and sidewalks are expected to be constructed from Oct. 1 through Oct. 17.
"The project is expected to be finished up by the end of November," the plan on the site states.
"There will be road closures, and intermittent water shutoffs as we proceed on the projects," the website continues. "We will try to notify residents and businesses as far in advance as possible."
Updates are available on the website or by calling city hall at 509-633-1510.
The Star has reported further details on the project in previous articles, but did not separately list the $72,899 bid acceptance for building a parking lot in front of city hall, including replacement of some water lines. That will be paid for with money allocated from the city's general fund and done by Wheeler Excavation, which is doing all of the projects totalling $1,124,900.96.
