Update # 2
The City of Red Lake Falls is committed to excellent Public Health and Safety through its Streets and Public Utilities, we are pleased to announce the 2019 Street and Utility Improvements project will occur along the frontage of your parcel, home or place of business. This construction will occur in the SW quadrant of Red Lake Falls on International Dr., Polk Ave., 3rd St. SW, 4th St. SW, St. Mary’s, Falls Ave. State Ave., Chicago Ave., Champagne Ave., as well as select addresses on Hamilton Ave. NE.
Over the past week construction has been progressing nicely, even with the wet and snowy weather we have been experiencing. The contractor has finished the watermain installation under 3 Street and State Avenue and will be connecting this new watermain to the existing watermain and a few new fire hydrants over the coming days. The contractor will also be installing water services in the coming days as well. Residences will continue to run off the temporary water setup until the contractor is able to install all the water services and the newly installed watermain passes all required leakage and bacteria testing.
During the past week, the contractor was also able to begin some work repairing failing areas of the sanitary sewer main. In the coming week the contractor will continue to repair failing areas of the sanitary sewer main and will also begin to replace a few sanitary sewer manholes throughout the project area that are failing. The contractor will work to replace any sanitary sewer services on 3 Street that were requested to be replaced within the coming week.
As always, the scheduled work may change due to inclement weather. For the safety of the workers and the public, we ask that you be mindful of the construction traffic and activities, and please keep a safe distance.
Best Regards, Dylan Brown PE, City Engineer 701-412-5136
