Bailey Street – West Avenue to Main Avenue

Phasing Plan

Project Update 7/2/2020

  • The contractor began paving Phase 1B north of Veteran’s Memorial Park this week. 

  • Moisture and subgrade issues were encountered on the west leg of this phase so paving has currently been put on hold until the contractor completes digging out the subgrade and adding rock. 

  • Paving has been completed on the east leg of this phase.  

  • The contractor hoping to have paving on Phase 1B complete next week. 

  • Asphalt patching on the Russell Street frontage road will follow.

  • Utility work on Phase 2A between Minnesota Avenue and Summit Avenue is complete. 

  • The contractor plans to start working on grading next week.

  • Water main installation on Phase 2B between Minnesota Avenue and Main Avenue is complete.

  • The contractor is now working on storm sewer upgrades.

  • Once Phase 1B paving is complete, the contractor will start utility work on the corner of Bailey Street and Walts Avenue. 

  • This will close this intersection down, but leave Prairie Avenue open. 

  • Bailey Street will also be open west of Walts Avenue for access to Veteran’s Memorial Park. 

  • This could potentially start late next week.
