August 19, 2019 Sailor Street project update:  Holtmeier is starting removals on 3rd Street today and will finish tomorrow.  On Tuesday, August 20th there will be two crews in town to perform water tie-ins in order to isolate the watermain along phase 2.  To perform these tie-ins, the watermain will be shut down for the morning.  Residents impacted by this shut down will receive prior notice.  Holtmeier will continue to install all underground utilities in phase 2.  This work will take approximately three weeks to perform.  After completing the underground work the grading crew will come back and start the street restoration.  The street restoration process will be similar to phase 1 and will take two weeks.

August 8, 2019 Sailor Street project update:  The gravel base work has been completed on 1st and Sailor Street.  On Wednesday, August 7th these sections were reopened to traffic and residents should now have temporary access back into their driveways.  There will be little to no work occurring for the next week or so.  Toward the end of next week crews will begin removals on 3rd Street and underground utility work is expected to resume on 3rd Street on Monday, August 19th.
