A crushing project took place this week at Dawn Avenue and Skyline Court. The road work is now complete and the concrete contractor is making their way through three subdivisions to reinstall the concrete driveway approaches. They will be working in Hiawatha Park this week before moving to Ottawa Hills next week, and then at Skyline Heights the following week.
The next project that started this week was milling at Canoga and Kasey. The concrete work for the final two milling subdivisions has been completed and is awaiting the asphalt contractor. This is the current schedule as follows:
