Infrastructure Improvement Project

Project Updates

9/1/23 – The water in the City of Hanley Falls will be shut off on Wednesday, September 6th starting at 8am until connections are completed. This includes everyone East of the Railroad tracks. Please plan accordingly.

8/2/23 – The underground pipe has been installed in the downtown area along 3rd St. N and 3rd Ave. W. Concrete curb and gutter and most sidewalk has also been installed in the downtown area. Class 5 has been installed for the road base and rough graded. Please watch for uneven surfaces as there may be a step down from the curb in various locations. Watermain and sewer work is progressing on Railroad St. and Alley 2 behind City Hall. Road rebuilding will follow pipe work on Railroad St. when pipe work is complete. Once Railroad St. and Alley 2 work is complete, crews will work south down Alley 3 (East of 1st Ave E. or CSAH 38) to 2nd St. S.

7/26/23 Hanley Falls Water Shutdown - Bollig Engineering7/25/23- A water shutdown is scheduled for the morning of Wednesday, 7/26/23 for part of Hanley Falls in order to install 2 new gate valves. The area encompassed on the map in red shows the properties that will be shut down for part of the day. Voss plans to shut off water in the morning and turn back on as soon as work is completed. Watch for a door hangar on effected properties with more detailed information including shut off time and estimated duration.

7/13/23 – Two of the main storm sewer outlets for the City have been installed. The downtown area, which had a lot of pipe to install, is complete, with road rebuilding to begin this week. The road will be gravel for some time, and bituminous pavement, concrete curb and gutter, and sidewalk will be installed later this year. Once this area reopens to vehicle traffic, be careful for uneven surfaces and missing portions of sidewalk and curb and gutter while traveling on foot. Upcoming work will be concentrated more in residential areas, so expect increased need to detour and stay clear of construction areas and to park temporarily in alternate locations. The work in residential areas generally has less pipe to install than the downtown area, so it may seem like the construction crew is moving through the project area more quickly than for the work completed so far. If you will need handicapped access to your property or other special accommodations, please contact the project RPR.

6/7/23 – Access to the post office in Hanley Falls has been opened back up on 2nd Ave. W from county road 38 from the south.
