3 Projects In Progress:

Big Lift At Plaza
Saturday January 20, 2018 -- I noticed it took a massive crane to lift a not-so-massive light fixture into place at the new city plaza. But that appears to be the new reality as the city has chosen to block entry for even a small bucket truck to service that area. -- Ted Wright
Casey's General Store Foundation
Forms are in place now showing the outline of the new Casey's General Store being constructed on the lot where the former Sale Barn / Clark's Building used to stand. The store will be closer to Broadway with the open (gas pump area) on the Main Street end of the block northeast of 9th and Main. The view in these photos is taken from near the alley behind the Donut Shop ... in case you aren't familiar with the view now that the historic building has been removed ... looking towards the railroad tracks.

Junp Start On "Safe Routes To School" Project
With school kids out on break (but temperatures often below freezing) workers took on a small portion of the "Safe Routes To School" project the city has gotten funding for after several years of waiting. The top two photos are looking from the Middle School (at Center) towards Main Street. The total project will eventually cover from Center to Broadway on both sides of 14th Street for the Middle School and sidewalks on a small portion of the east side of 129th Street near the elementaries south of town. Improved crosswalks and signaling will also also be included in the project.
This one block portion of the sidewalk upgrade (from Main to Center on the west side of 14th) was completed in time for the students return to the Middle School January 4th, after the Christmas / New Year break. The white pickup is parked in front of the wrestling room in this view looking from Main Street (that parking area was also added recently).
