Work on the City of Kellogg’s Sewer Rehabilitation and Replacement project is nearing completion.
Big Sky Development, the contractor for Phase III of the project, is completing the final paving preparation work on lower Third Street, Legion Ave, Teddy Ave, and West Park, along with the Trail of the Coeur d’Alene’s, the alley off of State St, between the trail and Bunker Ave, the alley behind Wells Fargo Bank and the City pool parking lot. This round of paving is scheduled to begin Wednesday morning June 12th.
Water and sewer work is still underway on West Portland Ave which will then be graded and prepared for paving as well.
Knife River, the contractor for Phase II of the project north of I-90 in the Sunnyside Addition, continues with their work on Mission Ave., Mullan Ave., Riverside Ave. and Cameron Ave East of Division Street. Sidewalks and curbing are being completed and road preparation for paving is underway.
Waterline is being installed beyond the cul-de-sac at the West end of Mullan Ave. The area will then be cleaned up and prepared for paving.
As always, be safe. Obey road closure signs and drive carefully around and through active construction zones. Allow extra time for commuting and watch out for heavy equipment moving through the area, operators may not be able to see you.
Parents are asked to remind their children to avoid active construction zones and to not play on material piles placed throughout the area. Everyone needs to be constantly aware of heavy equipment and understand that operators struggle with blind spots that make it difficult to see people, pets, traffic and especially young children moving throughout the site. This is an absolute priority as school will be out soon and young children will be moving around throughout the entire day.
Again, thank you for your patience and understanding as work continues. Don’t be afraid to say thank you to all of the people who are working hard on your behalf.
