Greene gives update on Depot Street progress

October 19, 2010

Work is progressing on the Depot Street reconstruction project and the portion of the roadway exiting onto South Michael Street is expected to reopen soon.

Area residents tired of negotiating around the road construction in the Depot Street area only have about a month to go before the project is expected to be completed.
Work is progressing on schedule and, according to city manager Dave Greene, has not faced any major delays. The Depot Street reconstruction project consists of replacing the existing asphalt, curbs, sidewalks and storm sewer system.
The portion of the roadway spanning from South Michael Street to the CareerLink office has been under construction since early September.
"We plan on [the entire project] done before Thanksgiving," Greene said.
Greene indicated that, weather permitting, the portion of the roadway from South Michael Street to CareerLink will be paved sometime this week. After paving is completed, that section of the roadway will be reopened to traffic and work will shift to the remainder of the project, which spans from CareerLink to Fourth Street.
"The second half of the road won't take as much time to do because they only have the one side to do on the south side of Depot Street and there's not as many storm drains in that section," Greene said.
Completion for the first phase of the project was estimated at about six weeks.
