City Wide Resurfacing & Gravel Reconstruction Projects Begin

The City's first two infrastructure projects began on Oct. 20. Both projects represent an investment greater than $800,000 into our roadway infrastructure. Please be alert for construction activity on the roadways listed below and be mindful of any workers on the road.
"While the City's budget for road improvements is somewhat limited, we have selected roads that need work the most based on a standard rating system," said Public Works Director Dan Drake. "The Pavement Condition Index, or PCI, gives roads a rating of 1 to 100-with 100 being excellent-and this year we chose to work on local roads with a rating of 30 or below. This will ensure that citizens see the maximum road improvement from their tax dollars."These projects are expected to be completed by Nov. 15. Work on each road will be done during weekday business hours, with start times as early as 8 A.M. and ending no later than 6 P.M.
