Seems like we are in the dog daze of not only summer but of the street project as well. The last two weeks since the Festival has seen much activity in the way of brick removal and storm sewer improvements.

Activity for this week will include:

  • Storm sewer work at 9th and Court
  • Sub-drain installation from Prairie to Court
  • Sub-base installation with modified rock will start this week at Prairie and 9th and progress north.
  • Cross your fingers but we are hoping the Courthouse lights are back on this week also.

No major surprises in this phase of the project other than the horse trough / fountain thing. For those that did not get to see it, here are photos of the mystery object. Can anyone date or identify the object?

Stay tuned for further updates through the week.
