Downtown Owatonna Construction Update: Racing to Beat Winter
Minnesota has road construction and winter as two of its main seasons. And it's not good when the two overlap. Road construction crews are progressing in the downtown Owatonna Streetscape Project. With the change in season looming remember, the downtown businesses are open and owners are adjusting their access as construction dictates.
The Owatonna Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism (OACCT) in this week's Tuesday Talk newsletter provides an update. For the 300 block of North Cedar, "Concrete typically will take between seven and 14 days before it can be driven on. Please do not enter the construction area until road is open to traffic. Contractor is planning to construct the concrete curb and gutter within the Pearl Street intersection next week (first week of November)."
Regarding the 200 block, Tuesday Talk reports, "Installation of the sanitary sewer manhole within the Vine Street intersection is anticipated (this may require a bypass pump on Broadway Street and will cause traffic changes within the 100 block for one day). Contractor plans to connect the water main within Vine Street. The storm sewer installation on the south half of the block is anticipated to follow."
Get the full update, and access to a live streaming video through the Owatonna Chamber website.
