Granger Road Reconstruction Project

Granger Road Reconstruction Project

            Project Update   October 28, 2014

CITY OF CRESCO (3rd Street West)


The new water mains are fully installed and crews are working on hooking up individual service lines to the new main.  The storm sewer is near completion as well. 

The crews will finish up pouring concrete on the north side of the Granger Road between  7th Ave W and 8th Ave W around 10/29/2014.

Crews will then begin work on the south end starting at Highway 9 and work north hopefully on 10/30/2014.


HOWARD COUNTY (County Road V58)


The road is now open to vehicles.  The only work remaining is in Lime Springs with some sidewalk extensions and dirt work.

Notice of Water Off:

Watermains are currently being replaced on the Granger Road from Highway 9 working north.  Water will need to be turned off intermittently during this process.  Crews are working as hard as they can to keep the water running.  However, people maybe affected by the water being shut off that live within 3 blocks of the Granger Road.  Please be patient while they get the new watermain installed.
