Sidewalks surfacing on 2nd

By Bill Rautenstrauch

The Observer

Reconstruction of Second Street near Penn Avenue entered a new phase this week as workers began building sidewalks and curbs.

The major rebuild began this year after the City of La Grande’s public works department discovered that the hillside in the area was slipping.

Work to date has included construction of a retaining wall and replacement of a pipeline along the street. The final phase, happening now, includes the sidewalks and curbs and street paving.

Public Works Director Norm Paullus said the street could be re-opened in two or three weeks, depending on the schedule of the contractor, JW Contracting of Bend.

“We’re cleaning the project up, getting it done,” Paullus said. 

The project has an estimated cost of $900,000, and is being paid for with city utility and street user fees, and federal funding distributed by the state of Oregon.
