The project team is working to install new curb and gutter on the east end of the project near 13th Street. Once the curb and gutter are installed, new sidewalk will be poured. The team will be working on utility identification the week of May 29 on El Rancho Drive between Prater Way and Victorian Ave. A minor detour may be needed for the safety of workers.

Memorial Day Observed

The project team sincerely appreciates all of our men and women in uniform and remembers the people who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Thank you to those who serve!  We wish everyone a safe Memorial Day weekend.
