Industrial Avenue Reconstruction Project (RISE) Completed

Industrial Ave Before-After

The reconstruction of Industrial Avenue north of Boyson Road with contractor, Horsfield Construction from Epworth, Iowa has now been completed. The contractor started work in September of 2015 and completed work in June of 2016. Approximately 1,200 feet of the existing Industrial Avenue was removed and replaced with a new 31 foot wide, eight inch thick concrete paving with new storm sewer. This design was used to accommodate the heavy truck traffic in the area.

The project included all new sidewalk installation and driveway reconstruction on properties along Industrial Avenue. The City has notified all other property owners to complete the extension of the five foot wide sidewalk fronting their property by October 2016. This will provide pedestrian access for the first time to over 300 employees that work in the area.

This project was funded at approximately 50% with RISE funds from the Iowa Department of Transportation.
