Main St Sewer Improvements


Work will return to Main St between River Dr and 2nd St on Monday, June 15th.  The road will be closed through the end of July for sewer main improvements.


Work to install a new sewer main under Main St between River Dr and 3rd St is temporarily suspended due to river levels combined with recent rain and high water tables.

This work is tentatively rescheduled to begin around mid-June, pending favorable conditions.

Work to install a new sewer main under Main St between Beiderbecke and approximately 3rd St has been underway between River Dr and Beiderbecke for the last few months (when the Mississippi has been below flood stage). The next phases of the project will involve some pretty innovative sewer work starting the week of May 18th when the closure of Main St between River Dr and approximately 3rd St will be necessary. What’s unique about this phase is that plans are to implode the existing sewer main in-place and install the new sewer main by sliding it into place under the pavement. Manhole repairs and reconnecting adjacent facilities to the new sewer main will also be completed as part of the project.

The Main St Ramp will be accessible from Brady St during the project.

Lane reductions on River Dr are possible as work progresses. Stay tuned for alerts.

Work is estimated to be complete in early July.
