Alley Improvements

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option


The 2020 alley improvements will include alleys in the Central Business District and select repairs in Hi-Pointe/DeMun and Old Town.  The project is currently out to bid.  

In order to minimize long disruptions to the entire project area, the Public Works Department plans to have this work competed in phases.  Each phases in anticipated up to one week, depending on replacement area.  Delays due to weather may impact the schedule.  

Each phase will close a portion of an alley for approximately seven to ten days.  The pavement will be ready for traffic approximately 3 days after the concrete is poured.  While a segment/phase is closed, the remaining portion of the alley will be accessible to local traffic.  Please check back to this page for continued updates as the project progresses. 

Work will begin as early as 7 am each morning.  Please make arrangements to move your vehicle an alternate location prior to the beginning date for your phase.

There will be a coordinated effort with Republic Services to minimize disruptions to trash and recycling services in residential areas. Non-residential areas should coordinate pickups with their waste hauler based on the current construction schedule.  For residential areas we plan to have the contractor relocate your receptacle to the end of the work zone for pickup on each scheduled collection day.  Please have your appropriate receptacle out and visible in your rear drive/alley area by 7 am on the day of pickup.  We will attempt to track the cans and return them to the correct property, but it may be a good practice to place a piece of tape with you address (or some other temporary label) on your receptacle.


A detailed schedule will be developed once a contractor is selected.  Locations listed below are preliminary and most are partial repairs, full replacement are not anticipated at this time.
