Update on the Hartup-Elizabeth Street Reconstruction and the Hartup-Grand Community Sewer Project

Concrete pavement on North Hartup Street (Kansas Avenue to Marlin Street) was opened last week.   The contractor is holding off on any further removals at this time, due to the weather.  They want to make sure they can cover all the removals they have in the City before the weather turns too cold.

Hartup Street (Avenue A to Hancock Street) is closed to through-traffic with local access from both Avenue A and Hancock Street.  Local traffic can also access Hartup Street from Sietz Street.  Through-traffic on Hartup Street is detoured onto Park Street. 

Update on the Grimes/Anna Street Reconstruction Project

The contractor continued to work on the storm sewer along Grimes Street between 1st Street and Loomis Street.  Work continued on forming driveways and curb and gutter tie-ins along Anna Street.

Anna Street is closed from North High Drive to Grimes Street.  Grimes Street is closed from 1st Street to Loomis Street.  

Update on Hulse Area Drainage Project

Work continued on the box at North High Drive and Hulse, on the second half of the Myers box, and on the retaining wall between Grimes Street and Main Street.  Curb and gutter was completed near the Tractor Supply/Dillon's entrance and the first two lifts of asphalt were placed.

Myers Street is reduced to one lane.  The driveway remains closed between the Dillons and Tractor Supply parking lots. 

The intersection of North High Drive and Hulse Street is closed and will remain closed for another month.  We believe we can have the intersection open before the winter shutdown, weather permitting. 

Update on Plaza East Place Street Construction Project

All the utilities have been relocated at the intersection of Champlin and Plaza East Place.  The temporary access is marked and the first 80 feet are open for access into Arbys. BPU has sanitized the new water main and hooked up individual services on that line.  The storm water work is scheduled to start today.

The intersection of Plaza East Drive (formally a private drive) and Champlin Street is closed.
