Hiawatha awarded a contract to Horsfield Construction Inc. from Epworth, Iowa to reconstruct approximately 1,200 feet of the existing Industrial Avenue north of Boyson Road. The paving will be widened by six (6) feet with all new storm sewer and new driveways installed. The sidewalks will be added in the driveways but new sidewalks fronting the properties will be the property owner’s responsibility.
The paving of the first 600 feet north of Boyson Road was completed in the fall of 2015. The remaining street work will begin early April as the contractor mobilizes crews to resume construction. Sections of Industrial Avenue will be closed for the work to take place, however, driveways will be maintained with temporary access established.
