Good Morning,

On this bright sunny day, I am happy to report that the intersection of Court Street and 9th Street has opened for traffic as has the first half block of 9th Street south to the Adel Health Mart. There are still a few details to clean up and a little sidewalk left to pour – but the streets are open in this area.

Schedule for today and into next week include continued general clean up of the entire site and installation of storm sewer intakes.

Brick work is continuing south and will be to the intersection of Main Street today. Saturday and Monday work will commence on laying brick in the intersection and transition areas along Main Street. At this time it is likely Main Street will be open in time for Thanksgiving.

Work continues on lighting and wiring – I do not have a date for completion of that work yet.

Be sure to stop in the Health Mart today as not only do they have street access again, they are celebrating their annual open house from 8:00 am – 6:00 pm.

(Please note in this area, traffic will be allowed to move south on 9th Street and should exit the area via the alley. This will provide a “circular” driving pattern in the area and aid in traffic control.)

Have a great week.
