to begin on Lewiston St.
The City of Cottonwood is ready to begin a major street improvement project on Lewiston Street. The project will involve replacing the sewer main line and rebuilding the street between the Kindergarten School and the Community Credit Union.
The old 6” sewer main will be replaced with a new 8” line and 10 new manholes will be installed. This portion of the project will be completed before the actual street work begins and is a pre-emptive strategy to avoid tearing up the new street surface in the future. This portion of the funding is provided solely from the City sewer fund from monies set aside over the years for just such a project. The sewer line replacement is scheduled to begin in early April and be finished by the end of May.
Following that portion of the project, the road surface will be removed, the dirt and clay base excavated and rebuilt and a new asphalt surface installed. Funding for the street replacement is being provided by an Idaho Department of Transportation grant and will be administered by ITD. The street replacement will occur during school break (June through August). The City is requesting patience from residents as there will be periodic disruption of traffic including delays and detours this summer. Our patience with the inconveniences will be rewarded with a badly needed new street, which is one of the city’s main traffic arteries. Any questions can be directed to Carol at City Hall.
