Construction

There have been a few delays due to weather over the last month. The contractor will be finishing the stormwater improvements, curb and gutter, sidewalk, and topsoil grading over the next two weeks. Then, they'll repave the road - this will take a few weeks. Major work will be done at the end of January with the project being completely finished in February.
