Early in the week of June 25, Knife River will be completing the colored, stamped concrete at the northeast corner of 2nd and Main Street. On Monday, crews began the removals for the northwest corner of this same intersection, and the storm drain installation and pouring the new curb and gutter and sidewalk. The schedule is to complete the northwest corner by July 6. The end of the week of July 2, crews may begin the removals and storm drain work on the southwest corner of the intersection. During this two-week period, additional sidewalk removals and replacements along the west side of Main Street may also be performed, schedule and weather permitting.
