Construction Update: The next two weeks are full of steps that should really start to show progress on the tops of the streets.  Everything so far has been below ground for the most part, so it is sometimes hard to envision.  Again, I want to extend many thank yous to the businesses, residents, and visitors for your patience.  There is never a ‘good’ time to tear up your streets, but the improvement in water quality in town should really be worth it.  All information below is subject to change based on weather, component supply chains, etc. Week of 9/27 Finish up connection on corner of Murray and Hwy 371  Make connection on corner of Whipple and Hwy 371 Lanyk Electric finish setting new light pole bases USA Company (main contractors) go across Hwy 371 (underground) to begin water main replacement that will happen from old Loons Unlimited down past Birchwood Begin sidewalk and road grading on all streets so that….
