  • Project Update as of September 20:  Due to high river levels and ground water infiltrating the trench excavation, no work has been able to be performed since back in April. River levels have significantly fallen and we believe we can resume work. Our contractor, Gershenson Construction, moved their equipment back on site. They will start to install the remainder of the 60” pipe along the alley beginning 9/20/19.
