ALBERT LEA, MN — Despite the wet weather, things are moving forward on the Broadway Streetscape and Reconstruction Project in Albert Lea.
Starting today, crews have closed Broadway Avenue from Clark Street to William Street.
It’s closed to allow workers to dig in and work on the water main and storm sewer.
Despite that closure, officials say drivers will be getting some good news later on this week.
“They pretty much got everything from Fountain to Water Street back in,” Albert Lea City Engineer Steve Jahnke said. “The only thing that isn’t done yet is the sidewalk. If we get a couple of days of good dry weather, we would get those sidewalks in and then we would be ready to open that up.”
Despite construction, Jahnke says sidewalks will remain open for several weeks to allow shoppers to access downtown businesses.
