Phase 3 begins
Phase 3 of the detour through Spring Grove began on Thursday as the Division Avenue intersection was closed and pavement was removed. The photo shows the construction of the intersection looking north toward the American Legion and Wilmington Insurance. Other progress of the project this week included paving from west termini of the project to 3rd Avenue SW and hooking up temporary water bypass lines. Plans for next week’s work, weather permitting, include pouring curb and gutter east of Division Avenue, finishing the pouring of sidewalk and pedestrian ramps west of Division Avenue, and sanitary sewer, water main, and storm sewer work at the Division Avenue intersection. Work was also slated to begin on Monday (when the paper went to print) on Highway 44 from Spring Grove to Highway 52. Milling of the bituminous roadway surface was to begin with a pilot car controlling traffic.
