11th Street Reconstruction Project

The 11th Street reconstruction project will span 2 construction seasons.  The north half will be completed in 2018, and the south half will be completed in 2019.  This timeline has been chosen in order to minimize conflicts with John Deere Middle School traffic.

The project will include pavement replacement with 8” of concrete, sidewalk repairs, driveway repairs, storm sewer improvements, water main replacement including services, sanitary sewer replacement including services, and other associated work.

This project is funded through local funds, including tax funds for electric and gas usage. 

This project was chosen due to the failing sanitary sewer, the out-of-date water main, and the deteriorating pavement condition.
