Street Resurfacing Project Nears Completion

constructionSheldon, Iowa — Motorists driving on the core streets in downtown Sheldon are noticing a much easier and smoother ride than they’ve experienced the past month or so.

A resurfacing project that was begun about a month ago is nearing completion, with just a few finishing touches that still need to be completed.  The streets are open, and according to Sheldon City Manager Scott Wynja, there is still some manual rehab that needs to be completed, as well as the lines painted in the new street surfaces, along with some other minor touch-up issues.

The old surface removal began about a month ago on portions of 8th and 10th Streets, along with portions of 3rd and 4th Avenue around the downtown Sheldon core.  Paving of these streets was completed earlier this week, and the streets are now open to traffic.
