Street Construction Ends Soon

Seasonal street work in Valley City is wrapping up, with completion for a major project planned for next week.
The street portion Ninth Avenue Northwest project should be finished late next week, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony tentatively scheduled for Oct. 23, according to Chad Peterson of KLJ. While lighting has already been installed and actual street work should be finished Friday, work is still needed on the shared use path and sidewalk along Ninth Avenue Northwest.
The Ninth Avenue Northwest project cost about $4.2 million over a two-year period, said Peterson.
Other projects wrapping up include Eighth Avenue Northeast north of the Rainbow Bridge, which should be finished Friday, and and Third Avenue Northeast near Taco Johns, which should also be finished this week.
"We're getting to that cleanup phase," said Peterson.
In all, Valley City invested about $1.5 million, aside from the Ninth Avenue project, on 2013 street projects.
