DIXON – Work on the downtown streetscape project has entered its sixth week.

Peoria Avenue, between First and Third streets, will be closed as construction crews work on finishing curb and gutter work, sidewalks, driveways, light pole bases and water service installations, among other elements, according to the engineering firms.

According to the firms, Wendler Engineering Services Inc. and Willett Hofmann & Associates:

First Street, from Hennepin to Galena avenues, will remain closed. Crews are expected to do sidewalk and brick work, with pavement installation beginning mid-week.

The south side – eastbound lanes – of First Street, between Ottawa and Crawford avenues, will be closed for water main installation. The construction company will work with KSB Hospital to have access to the Commerce Towers parking lot at all times.

Ottawa Avenue, from Second to First streets, will be closed for continued work on a retaining wall.

Additional temporary road closure may be needed, according to the engineering firms.
