The new 3rd Avenue
Crews began paving on N. 3rd Ave. E. last Thursday morning, Oct. 4, from Winnebago to Shady Oaks Lane. Paving will continue east as concrete cures and allows for traffic. The majority of the underground work is completed with the exception of storm sewer work from Grant St. to Lake St. When that’s done, the last section will be prepped for paving. There will be a road closure and detour some time in October at Hwy. 69 and N. 3rd Ave. E., to allow for crews to connect water and storm sewer to the west side of lake street. The hope is that the detour will last no more than a week.
