TH 15 Update

An update on TH 15 traffic control. The traffic signal at Torgerson Drive and TH 15 will be disabled next week beginning Tuesday, Sept. 12th. A 4-way stop will be set-up to provide temporary traffic control. The contractor will be upgrading the traffic signal during this time and is intending to have the lights operational on Friday, Sept. 15th.

2017 Improvements

Cardinal and Charles Street have been paved, the new sidewalk is complete, and these streets are open to traffic. The contractor will be back to finish grading and complete turf establishment later this month. Camelot Court is up to aggregate grade and is ready for paving. Parking Lot C removals have been completed and the storm sewer system has been installed. Aggregate surfacing will be completed in the upcoming week. The trail and parking lot along the west side of Sisseton have been graded and are near ready for asphalt paving as well. Paving is scheduled for later in September on all of these projects.

10th and 11th Street removals have begun and temporary water service lines have been installed. Underground construction is scheduled to begin next week and these streets will be closed to vehicle access as the underground construction ramps up.

The contractor for Margaret Street, Holtmeier Construction, is planning to begin underground work next week. All of the watermain is being replaced on this project and temporary water service will be provided to those properties that are connected to the 12" main in Margaret Street. The excavation is anticipated to begin on the east end of the project which will limit vehicle traffic from traveling east to TH 15. Be aware of construction signage as traffic will be affected with this construction. With a late start to the construction, it is expected that the contractor will complete the underground construction this fall and bring the street up to gravel grade for the winter. All hard surface paving and curb installation will be completed in 2018.

TH 15 Update

Concrete work continues on TH 15. Several of the intersections on the west side of TH 15 have been re-opened in the last few days. East Victoria is closed and will be realigned to provide a perpendicular intersection with the highway. Additional concrete work is expected to begin from 10th Street north this week and continue into next week with median repairs and intersection work at Winnebago and Torgerson. Paving is tentatively scheduled for the last two weeks of September.
