The City of Delta is alerting citizens about a capital improvement project that involves the alleys between Main and Meeker streets from 2nd to 5th, and between Main and Palmer from 2nd to 5th.
The project will begin in the alley between Main and Meeker from 5th to 4th and progress one alley at a time north until 2nd Street, then cross over to the west side of Main Street and continue from south to north.
The alleys that will be impacted by the construction are where the city recently completed installation of the storm water project. Construction includes a center concrete gutter pan to carry water to the newly constructed storm sewer and asphalt pavement. During construction, detours will be in place to route pedestrians and traffic around impacted areas and trash pickups will be adjusted accordingly. Delivery schedules and parking access will need to be coordinated with the contractor as they work in each area/block.
During the entirety of construction, the impacted streets will be maintained in gravel until paving can commence at the end of the project. Questions or concerns about this project may be directed to city staff at 874-7566 ext. 216 or to the contractor at 874-3134.
