Fairgrounds Park Drainage Improvement
The limits of the proposed sanitary sewer would be from just west of Hot Dog Richies, continue east on Hicks Place towards the intersection of Northwest Highway at Lincoln, and then run east on Lincoln to the intersection of Lincoln at Forest. This project will start as soon as the first week of October and is expected to require the fall of 2013 and the spring of 2014 to construct. Plans call for work west of US-14 prior to winter and east of US-14 in the spring of 2014. This project will require traffic pattern adjustments on Hicks Place, Colfax Street, and Lincoln Street during various phases of the work.
