Project Plans and Specifications

Project Description: The City will be contracting with a general contractor for the street reconstruction of Main Street from 5th Street through 7th Street and new water main from 5th Street to 10th Street.  The project will include the installation of a new 8 inch water main down Main Street and new service lines to meter pits located in front of the buildings.  The street reconstruction will be very similar to the 400 block of Main Street that was completed in 2014. 

Street reconstruction will include planting of new trees, new irrigation system, new underground electrical, new concrete sidewalk, new curb and gutter, new concrete parking and a new asphalt street.  The street reconstruction will first occur on the south half of Main Street from 5th Street through 7th Street. 

The south half of Main Street will be closed during construction, but the north half of Main Street will remain open to one way traffic with parking (except for a few days while new water service lines are installed).  Once construction is completely finished on the south half of Main Street, the south half will be opened to one way traffic with parking, and the north half will be closed and reconstructed.
