At Thursday, March 15th progress meeting, McGraw Custom Construction Superintendent Mike Ashton gave an update on the work done between Lynch Street and Campbell Drive. He says crews are trying to keep the road as accessible to the public as possible.

“As a community service we have taken out the entire corner structures and sidewalks and we moved the road way over roughly 10 ft. and that gives us access so that the intersection is not closed. We are trying to keep things open as long as we can and if we can keep them open by doing a little bit of extra work we are doing that,” he says.

Work to date includes storm drain installation between McKinnon Street and Lynch Street, the installation of a water main between Lynch Street and Campbell Drive, and the connection of sewer services.Ashton says in the next few weeks crews will be completing the installation of the water main between Lynch Street and Campbell Drive, as well as installing a storm drain between the two. Crews will also be starting sub-excavation and electrical work between Lynch and Campbell.

Ashton says by the end of the month crews will likely be working between Campbell Drive and St. Michaels Street. Concrete work is expected to begin in April or as soon as weather permits. For more information on the project go to www.wrangell.com

The Next progress meeting is scheduled for Thursday, March 29th at 10 A.M. in Wrangell’s City Hall.
