During the Dell Rapids City Council’s last regular meeting on Monday, June 5th, the council received the news that the 10th street project was substantially complete. The street was opened to traffic starting on Friday, June 2nd. The final walk-thru of the project took place on Tuesday, June 6th.
Dell Rapids Mayor Tom Earley said, “I think right now would be very appropriate on my part to recognize the fact that 10th street wouldn’t maybe be there if it hadn’t been for Mr. Geraets and Mr. Crisp. We appreciate the initiative they took and the work you guys did to get it going. It’s a very visible project in town… They’ve done a nice job up there and it looks nice.”
The entire project included utility work, drainage, sidewalk, curb and gutter, driveway approach updates, and a new asphalt road between Orchard Hills and Iowa Ave.
With the completion of the project, the council approved a pay request from T&R Contracting on the project.
