As the summer comes to an end, construction in Dell Rapids continues to be at full strength on four big projects.
The 15th Street project continues at a steady pace. All of the curb and gutter has been installed throughout the project. Driveways and approaches along with sidewalks will be the next steps of the project in the coming weeks. The final completion date is still projected to be October 31st.
The new County Fair Foods store has seen great progression over the last few weeks. The roof was just recently completed, and there is continuous site grading. According to John Clark of County Fair Foods, the new store is predicted to be open by Christmas of this year.
The Family Dollar building has gone up as well in recent weeks, and crews have be working on the removal of the asphalt parking lot. The Casey’s site has seen some significant changes as well. The entire Dell Rapids Event Center building has been removed to make way for the new Casey’s location. Both the Family Dollar and Casey’s General Store should be open sometime early in 2014.
