The $2.4 million 100 West infrastructure project is on budget and on track for completion by Dec. 6 – weather permitting, according to Lisa Church, city spokesperson.

Church in an email said the shared use path from 100 South to Emma Boulevard and other concrete work is also expected to finish the first week of December, although there is a risk of delay. “If temperatures become too cold to pave the road by early December, that part of the project will be delayed until spring,” said Church. “However, all trench patches will be paved over for winter travel.”

Heavy rains and uncertainty over where some of the underground utilities were located caused delays for the project, which includes the installation of nearly 2,000 feet of new sewer line under 100 West between 200 South and Walnut Lane; pavement reconstruction on 100 West and 100 South from Main Street to 200 North, and the extension of the Mill Creek Parkway shared use path, north from 100 South along 100 West to Emma Boulevard.
