Spruce Avenue in east central Washington County will be closed starting Tuesday. Construction will take place between Highway 92 and 220th Street two miles west of Ainsworth. The three mile section of road is set to be re-graded and surfaced by DeLong Construction of Washington. County Engineer David Patterson says the $812,000 thousand dollar project will include re-grading the road to restore the cross sections and improve ditches and drainage. The road will then be rocked with nine inches of material.
Construction is dependent on the weather but should be completed in about two months. This is part of Washington County’s Comprehensive Road Improvement Project.
