Services connected on 46 St. and Hwy. 53 for fourplex being built

Second lane to re-open later today

If you drove along Hwy. 53 east of the Battle River yesterday you may have noticed that a section of 46 St. was being dug up. The work was a planned, one-day closure while workers installed service connections to town water and sewer for the fourplex being constructed on the west side of 46 St.

The road was closed while the work was completed and there was a detour set up for local traffic at 37 St. and 38a St.

Services have now been installed and one lane of 46 St. was reopened this morning.

One lane remains closed today as crews complete back-filling and site cleanup. That lane is expected to reopen by the end of the day.

The construction area on 46 Street will be paved in the near future.
