The second phase of road work on South 9th Avenue begins today.  Road crews are preparing to work on South 9th Avenue between Van Buren and Polk Streets in Washington.  City Engineer Rob McDonald says detour signs and barricades are being placed today.

He says hauling operations will likely occur on Sitler Drive, South E Avenue, Buchanan Street and possibly Lincoln Street.  McDonald says base preparation and curb and gutter replacement will follow.

He notes the last part of the project will involve asphalt milling and overlay work on Polk Street, on 5th Street between Marion and North 2nd Street and on Marion and Iowa Streets between the railroad track and 5th Street.  McDonald adds some repair or replacement of the storm water intakes and curb and gutter are associated with these other streets.

He says new concrete intersections will be installed on 5th Street at Marion Avenue and at Iowa Avenue.  If you have any questions, contact Washington City Engineer Rob McDonald.
