Construction will take a short break between Christmas and New Year’s, so this will be the last update until 2021 unless something urgent arises. (Feels good to say 2021!) This week, Wahlund Construction will have finished the water and sewer replacements along the entire project area and will be doing “clean-up” work Monday-Wednesday.

Crews will take off for the holidays and resume work on Monday, January 4th with the start of the electric utility undergrounding between Seminary and Mill. (The rest of the project area already has the electric utility undergrounded.)

South Side: Church to Mill Street

Monday-Wednesday, December 21-23: Wahlund Construction will be doing “clean-up” work between Church and Mill Streets—patching holes, cleaning up debris, etc. Traffic will be moved to the two center lanes and parking will be restored wherever possible.

December 24-January 3: No construction

Monday, January 4th: Preparations for the underground electric installation begins, including saw-cutting and removing concrete, between Seminary Avenue and Mill Street along the west side of State. There will be noise and dust associated with this work.

Tuesday-Friday, January 5-8: Installation of the underground electric utility begins at Mill Street, heading north toward Seminary. North-south traffic on State Street will remain open at all times. However, there may be short-term, intermittent closures to East and West Mill Street as needed. Construction hours are from 6am – 5pm; no night work is planned.

Happy Holidays!
