The Polk Street Utility Improvements Projects is expected to begin August 8th. The project includes reconstructing the sanitary sewer, watermain, storm sewer and street pavements. The sanitary sewer included in this project is the main interceptor leading to the Waste Water Treatment Plant. The sewer was originally installed back in the late 1930's & early 1940's and is beyond its useful life. The utility project is located along the following streets within the City of Crandon.

* East Polk Street - Lake Ave (Hwy 8) to Park Avenue
* Park Avenue - East Polk Street to Glen Street
* Glen Street - Park Avenue to Railroad Avenue

The general contractor James Peterson & Son will begin installing sanitary sewer at the corner of Glen Street and Park Avenue and work towards the south along Park Avenue. Traffic will be open to local traffic only. Residents are encouraged to use side streets adjacent to the project. James Peterson & Sons plans to complete all the utility work this year before winter. Any remaining work not completed this year will be completed next spring.

Weekly progress meetings with the City, Contractor, and Engineer are scheduled to be held on the job site each Wednesday at 2:00 pm. The public is encouraged to attend.
