Hwy 6/7th Street construction project update


June 22nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

As part of a weekly report on the Highway 6/7th Street construction project here in Atlantic, Scott Suhr, Iowa Dept. of Transportation District 4 Planning Coordinator, says the contractor had a very productive week considering the amount of rain we received.

The sanitary sewer work at Mulberry, Pine and Spruce has been completed. The EPA work has also been completed. Bluffs Paving began trimming grade from Olive to Spruce. They will work on trimming grade from Spruce to Pine this week. The contractor will prepare grade from Pine to Cherry this week.

Suhr says there is a possibility the contractor may begin pouring concrete on Friday but there is a lot of work to do before that. The contractor will also work on the sanitary sewer near Plum Street this week. Atlantic Municipal Utilities could replace the water main later this week or possibly early next week.
