Hiawatha contracted with Shive Hattery Engineers and Architects to prepare the plans and specifications for the North Center Point Road/Emmons Street/Robins Road Intersection project. The contractor, Ricklefs Excavating of Anamosa started work on the Phase I contract. This contract also provides for the extension of “A” Avenue and the utility relocations on North Center Point Road.
New water mains and sanitary sewers will be installed along with the new franchise utility trench construction. This will allow all the overhead power lines to be removed and installed underground. The schedule for this project calls for completion in August. The construction plan calls for lane closures on North Center Point Road and part-time road closures on Emmons Street and Robins Road. Detours will be established and signed to direct traffic.
