Streetscape Update…
Effective beginning of next week Monday December 3, 2018, the Utility Boring Crew will be drilling underneath Highway 42 in Ephraim. This will result in occasional lane closure and flagging operations, the Highway will remain open but proceed with caution and follow flagging direction and slowdown in the affected area.   

We received news today that the reconstruction phase of the Streetscape Project will be going out for bid today, another hurdle overcome.

Attention All Residents….

We have been informed that due to the Sanitary Manhole project we must detour all north bound traffic on highway 42, from Monday Nov 12th afternoon through Friday Nov 16th afternoon.  North Bound traffic will be detoured at County Q where you can continue to Townline Drive then turn left on Townline and proceed back to highway 42 The southbound lanes will continue to be open and north bound lanes will be open to local traffic only.





Good Morning Ephraim
This is a brief update on the progress of the Streetscape project. Utility Line Burial has begun and the crew is busy digging holes throughout and boring the lines in the south section of the project area.  Please use caution in the construction zone, today we change the speed limits in the village but our work area will still likely remain at a reduced speed for safety reasons. 

Next week the sanitary manhole repair project is scheduled to begin.  This work will result in additional traffic impacts and flagging operations but the highway will remain open.  We are underway!
