Thu 10-12-2017

            (Arnolds Park)-- Some enhancements are in the works for a stretch of West Broadway Street in Arnolds Park. The city council last (Wed.) evening awarded a bid of $134,252 for the project. Jeff Rose is an engineer with Jacobson-Westegard Associates...Rose01 

            "Basically we'll be going from Allen Avenue to the Highway. We'll be replacing the curb and gutter and sidewalk on the north side of the street and repair the curb and gutter and sidewalk on the south side as needed. Once that concrete work is done we're going to look at milling down the asphalt road and putting on a two inch overlay."

Rose says there should be very little to no impact on businesses in that area...Rose02 

"There will be slight impacts on the road. It's when we do the overlay it's going to impact the road the most. We'll have to shut down the road a few hours for the asphalt to cure."

Rose says work could get underway yet this fall with completion in the spring.
