Phase II of the project is under way as the Sweetcorn Festival is now behind us. This phase of the project includes two street blocks of South 9th Street and three intersections (Court, Main, and Prairie Streets). Crews are working fast and one block of brick are already removed. The work flow will generally be in a south to north direction and storm sewer upgrades are already almost complete at 9th and Prairie Streets.

Sidewalk replacement on Main Street west of 9th will begin in the early part of September. The North side of the street will be done first to allow for upgrades and connections to the storm sewer system in that area and to provide for finished connections to 9th and Main storm intakes. Work on the South side of the street will commence around the middle to end of September, or after the work on the North side is completed.
