L. Howard Construction continues to make improvements to the cityís sewer infrastructure on the intersection of College Avenue and 10th and Hickory streets.

Work started Monday, resulting in the closure of part of College Avenue.

While workers have made substantial progress this past week, there is much work remaining, said city staffer Erik Rejino.

The work consists of reconstructing manholes and a sewer crossing along 10th Street and Hickory Street as the line crosses College Avenue. The sewer lines and manholes have been in place for several decades and are in severe need of replacement. This project will help prevent a major sewer overflow in this area.
