10th Street Project to be Fully Complete in 2017

10thStreetProjectDuring the Dell Rapids City Council’s Regular Meeting on Monday, September 19th, City Administrator Justin Weiland gave an update to the council on the 10th Street project.  Weiland mentioned that work is continuing for the project, and the utility sub-contractor is reporting that utility work should be complete within the next week.  Grading work is also being finished in front of the hospital to reach final grade.

The current plan of the project is to finish everything, including the curb and gutter and paving of the road in front of the hospital over the next couple of weeks.  The rest of the 10th Street project west of the hospital will be to only lay gravel on the street and let it set during the winter.  The curb and gutter, sidewalk, and paving will all occur in the spring of 2017.  After the utility work is complete and the gravel is in place on 10th Street, the street will be open throughout the winter months.
