The reconstruction of Dakota Street from Main Street to Cherry Street is progressing.
Pavement removal is nearly complete on the south two blocks between Main and Cedar. The sanitary sewer has been installed to the south side of National Street and the contractor has completed the sanitary sewer, water main, and storm sewer utility work in the Main Street and Dakota Street intersection.
The paving crew is now on-site and starting to construct storm sewer inlets at the Main and Dakota intersection, a process which will be followed by intersection paving. The inlet and paving work in the intersection is estimated to require an additional two to three weeks, weather permitting.
The temporary detour for east-west traffic on Main Street at Dakota Street will continue to be around Harvard Street, National Street, and Elm Street. The temporary detour will be extended to Clark Street for one to two days starting early on Monday, May 15, while the contractor is installing a new sewer main through the National and Dakota Street intersection. Once the sanitary sewer is installed through the National Street intersection, the temporary detour will revert back to National Street.
