Construction Work Continues In Downtown Sheldon

Sheldon Downtown Construction 8-9-13Sheldon, Iowa — Sheldon’s downtown face-lift is in full swing.

Sheldon City Manager Scott Wynja provided us with an update. He says that progress continues on Third Avenue. The main lines for both blocks on Third Avenue have been completed and Mid-American Energy is in the process of setting and placing the new street lights. Crews continue to frame and pour the bumpout areas and are in the process of working on the removal and replacement of some sidewalk sections.

Soon, Wynia says, crews will start with the color concrete that will be placed in the bumpout and crosswalk areas to enhance these sections. Once those sections are completed, he says they’ll switch the pedestrian traffic to the street until the sidewalks are done.

Construction workers have done some removals on the intersection of Third Avenue and Ninth Street and plan to complete this in two sections to reduce congestion on the flow of traffic.

There have been a handful of issues as it relates to some of the sidewalk sections, but they continue to work through those as they are uncovered. A majority of the work over the next couple of weeks will be on sidewalks and then soon moving toward the next sections of removals on Ninth Street.

If you have any questions that are specific to your business or general questions about the project, Wynja says you can contact the city office.
