Finishing details are being completed on the Main Street road construction project. This week trees were planted from Division Avenue to 3rd Avenue NW. Other progress included pouring sidewalk and pedestrian ramps east of Division Avenue, placing sod from 1st Avenue NW to 3rd Avenue NW, installing light poles from Division Avenue to the east, and raising manholes and water shutoffs. Next week plans are to continue pouring sidewalks and pedestrian ramps east of Division Avenue and installing light poles east of Division Avenue. A reminder to everyone - Highway 44 in downtown Spring Grove is still closed to traffic. The end is near, but until then, continue to use the local detour to get around downtown.

The Highway 44 project from Spring Grove to Highway 52 included paving the final surface lift of bituminous pavement from Underpass Quarry to Highway 44/Highway 52 intersection. Flaggers and pilot car will continue to control Highway 44 single lane traffic. Any specific questions regarding work being done in Spring Grove can be directed to Tim Hruska at THruska@whks.com. Updates are also posted on the project website, www.dot.state.mn.us/d6/projects/hwy44spring-grove/index.html.
