"In the Works..."

Riverfront Levee Concrete Replacement Project:

The City is having work done along our Riverfront Levee.  Wisconsin Street access to the Riverfront Levee is CLOSED beginning March 22, 2021, but Jones Street access to the Museum and Boat Ramp is OPEN.  There are a large number of concrete panels and curbline being torn out and replaced, and dirtwork done due to the train derailment damage that occurred along that area back in January, 2020.  Repairs began late last fall and will be ultimately completed summer, 2021 with final panel replacement, dirtwork and grass.  Watch for construction barricades, closed off sections of the levee, and construction workers and equipment throughout this process.  Thanks for your patience!
