Stages 3 and 4: on September 8th, the City Council approved Resolution No 2020-110 which allows the contractor and engineer to set a reasonable stopping date for the project in the fall of 2020. Due to significant delays from utility companies in phase 1 of the project, the project will not be completed in the fall of 2020 as originally planned. The Contractor may not even begin stage 3 this fall, depending on how weather and site conditions are looking as we get closer to finishing stage 2. If they are able to finish stage 3 of the project before the winter sets in, they will do so. The work that is not finished on this project in the fall of 2020 will be finished in the spring and possibly early summer of 2021. More information about the work that will and will not be completed this year will be provided in these newsletters as we get closer to the winter.
