Downtown road work ready to wrap up


Construction work at the intersections of Illinois St. and 13th and 14th avenues is nearly completed. The entire intersection is now open to through traffic. Construction cones delineate the lanes at this point because lane-stripe painting has not started.

Depending upon weather, the city hopes to get the stripes done at the beginning of this week, according to public services director John Hehnke.

The new stop light signal controllers are already installed, but the sensors won't be working at full function until the stripe painting is finished. Work on this project began in late June and is on track to be finished on schedule before the Oktoberfest parade. If line painting for the lanes isn't done by parade time, the cones will just be taken out of the street to make way for Oktoberfest revelers, Hehnke said.

This $711,000 project entailed removing and replacing all the pavement, curbs, gutters and sidewalks and replacing the roadway with concrete pavement on Illinois Street at the intersections of 13th and 14th Avenues.
