North 48th and Doris Bair Circle Repair...
Road work has begun on North 48th Street! The potholes are gone but now the road crew will be tearing up, then pouring concrete on the South side of the intersection. This work will take place on the South side on Thursday and Friday and will be barricaded until the construction company and city deem it safe to drive across.
Then on Wednesday, the 25th they will repeat the process on the North side of the intersection. Hopefully this will be finished by the weekend of the 28th.
All of the above is weather permitting of course.
People coming from the South will have an extremely tight turn into Doris Bair Circle and it is suggested that people with larger vehicles go further North to the turnaround near the dump and approach from the North.
