Tentative downtown construction schedule

South Main St., from the center of the entrance apartment north of Langdon St. to the north return of South St. was paved Thursday, May 31.


Jones Contracting will be sealing joints and starting to set up the South St. intersection for June.


Weather permitting, it will take most of the week to pour this intersection back.


Kinney and Sons will begin construction on S. Main St. Tuesday, June 5, and start grading to place the new five-foot wide sidewalk on the west side of Main St. from South St. North to North of Langdon St., then also start grading out the driveways.


Jones Contracting will come in right behind Kinney?s and start pouring the new sidewalk and the driveways back after the sidewalk has been completed.


Beginning the evening of Monday , June 4, homeowners will be able to access the new street and park there at night between 6 p.m. and 7 a.m.


They will access S. Main St. off a temporary connection at Langdon St. Homeowners need to be off the street during the day in order for the contractors to complete their work.


Kinney and Sons will continue to remove concrete, install drainage structures and grade the next phase from north of Webster St. to south of the Wayland State Bank drive on S. Main St.


Drish Construction have been relocating storm sewers to Green St., just west of Locust St., and should finish this work by today so they can get started laying sanitary sewer west of Locust St.


Mt. Pleasant Utilities will be working on water main relocations in the Green St. and Locust St. intersection beginning Monday, June 4.


At Maple leaf, Fye Excavating has hauled the existing granular surfacing and are working on grading, scarifying and recompacting the subgrade.


They will be doing this until Monday, June 4, and will then start placing fabric and subbase rock for the paving, weather permitting.


Crews are hoping to get the subbase rock placed so Jones Contracting could move in around June 11 to begin trimming the subbase rock and start pouring the new concrete parking lot.


Alliant Energy has a gas main to relocate along Mapleleaf Dr. and a gas service to lower across the parking lot. Before the sidewalk can be reconstructed, Lisco needs to lower a fiber line east to west along Maple leaf Dr.
