COLUMBUS, Ind. — Rain slowed down Fourth Street construction last week, but city officials maintain they're on schedule to meet their Nov. 7 completion date.
"We're on track," City Engineer Dave Hayward said.
The $1.7 million initiative to create a multi-functional urban street, capable of holding citywide festivities such as the Biggest Block Party Ever, reached a notable milestone Thursday with the re-opening of the Fourth and Washington streets intersection. Primary contractor Rieth-Riley Construction plans to have the sidewalks finished by today or Wednesday.
"After that it will be putting the trench drain down the middle of the road," Hayward said. "They'll be working on that this week."
Porous pavement, intended to help the street drain, also will be installed this week.
"They missed three days that they wanted to pour concrete because of the rain or the threat of rain," Hayward said. "Other than that, things are moving along nicely."
