Main St. project heading south

The Concrete Specialties crew puts the finishing touches on installing the new water main along the 100 block of S. Main St., last Friday, June 17. (Pioneer Photo/Jim Chouinard)    It has been slow at times, but the Main St. Project continues to move forward.

Work slowed a bit earlier this week as the crew crossed the Second Ave. intersection, and began moving down the 200 block, but was expected to have that completed this week.     Read More...
