Leaves fall, construction continues

Work on Second Street SE may go into November

Construction will be a fixture on 2nd Street SE for quite some time.

Residents were given a notice last month from the contractor hired by the city stating that construction will likely continue until Nov. 15, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday and sometimes Saturday, as needed.

“The work will consist of milling the existing asphalt, trenching to install water main, sanitary main and storm main and services to each lot, followed by reinstatement of the road.”

Asked about the project, Rob Niewenhuizen, the city’s director of public works and engineering, writes: “The 2nd Street SE project is a fairly major one which will see all of the city services upgraded along the street. This work is also being done in conjunction with the new Mt. Ida Mews care home project.”

“The Nov. 15 completion date is the worst case; I would anticipate that Webb Contracting will have this completed earlier as we require the road to be paved prior to freeze-up.”
