Newton Street restart eyed for water projectMarch 19, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Work continues on the ongoing U.S. 231 water supply and pressure improvements project, with crews currently grinding away on a stretch of 30th Street from the highway to near Nancy Baer Trucking.
At Monday night’s Utility Service Board meeting, Gas and Water Manager Tim Doersam explained that crews will resume work on Newton Street in about a week or two.
“It looks like everything’s going well for them,” he said.
He said after the meeting that it’s his understanding that Ragle Inc. crews will next move south from the intersection of 30th Street and Newton Street, but added that path is not set in stone. The work could begin either there or at the intersection of Matthew Avenue and Newton Street near the city’s water tower and progress northward.
Either way, that work will mark the final phase of the project.
Currently, road-closed signs are placed on 30th Street and General Utilities Manager Bud Hauersperger encouraged drivers to avoid the street. He did note that the eastbound lane is open intermittently.
The project is on pace to wrap up before Strassenfest, which takes place during the first weekend in August.
