Granger Road Reconstruction Project

Granger Road Reconstruction Project

            Project Update   September 4, 2014

CITY OF CRESCO (3rd Street West)

The concrete is flowing!!

The crews will finish up pouring concrete for the driveways of residents on the Granger Road between 8th Ave W and 12th Ave W.

Crews will then begin work on the south end starting at Highway 9 and work north.  Skyline Construction still assures us they will meet the October 31, 2014 completion date deadline.

HOWARD COUNTY (County Road V58)

After the road has been poured in city limits, the crews will continue to work their way to Lime Springs.

Please continue to use alternate routes during this construction period.

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.
