North Shore Drive road work expected to be complete by June 28

The North Shore Drive Reconstruction Project is expected to be complete just in time for the busy July 4 holiday.

Jason Petersburg, from Veenstra & Kimm, told the City Council Monday night paving of the road is complete, as well as all driveways and sidewalks except for a section located between Buddy Holly Place and North 5th Street.  The final section is expected to be completed within days.

Petersburg said sod and electrical work is in process and the entire project will wrap up by June 28.

Following the update, the Council voted unanimously to approve pay estate number seven to Wicks Construction Inc., of Decorah, Iowa for $218,937.

The $2.5 million North Shore Drive Reconstruction Project began last fall, with underground utility work being completed before winter.
