Phases Of Construction

West Hill Sewer Separation Project - Phase 3

Phase 3 project was awarded on April 16, 2015 to Hagerty Earthworks, LLC of Muscatine, Iowa in the amount of $4,988,688.00.  

Update as of July 26, 2017:  

The sanitary and storm sewer work in the 4th Street Park area continues with portions of Broadway and West 4th around the park being closed to traffic.  Notifications of closures will be provided ahead of time as much as is possible. Access on West 4th Street between Locust and Cherry Street is limited, but is still open to some local traffic. The driving surface is less-than-ideal so caution must be taken.  Avoid the area if possible.
