In early September, the City’s contractor, D’Allessandro Corporation, installed a new drainage structure on Mead Street. While performing the drainage work, it was discovered that sewer line on Mead Street is in need of repairs. The sidewalk and roadway restoration phase of this project has been postponed until the sewer line has been repaired.


No project schedule has been established. We are currently in the bidding process and expect to have a schedule available in July 2014.

The Mead Street Reconstruction Project includes:

- Roadway reconstruction

- Sidewalk reconstruction

- Traffic calming measures
