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 August 10, 2017:  

The focus of the contractor is up around 4th Street Park. The contractor is working on the sanitary sewer services on the west side of 4th Street Park at 4th & Broadway and moving toward Cherry Street. The paving contractor poured the concrete on W. 4th St. from Locust to Broadway this week but the street is not open to traffic. Grading for paving is occuring now on Broadway between the #3 and #4 alleys on the east side of the park. Broadway between the #3 and #4 alley will be paved after the sewer work up to Cherry Street is complete. Once the sewer contractor finishes the grading on Broadway and the sewer work up to Cherry they will move down to E. 5th to do their sanitary sewer replacement work between Cedar Street and Iowa Avenue.
