The City of La Grande’s “Big H” streetscape project continues downtown this week, with impacts similar to what they were last week.

In its regular update, the city said the alley  between Elm and Depot streets will be partially closed most of the week, as will the sidewalk on the east side of Elm Street between Adams and Jefferson Avenue. Also, finish work will continue on the new accent wall on Adams Avenue near Sterling Bank.

The Big H project includes a rebuild of sidewalks, alleys and alley approaches on Elm and Depot streets between Washington Avenue and Jefferson Avenue. The project also takes in the section of Adams Avenue between Elm and Depot, the north side of Washington between Elm and Depot, and the two alleys that run between Elm and Depot on either side of Adams.

Project contacts are Norm Paullus, public works director, 541-962-1325; Community and Economic Development Director Charlie Mitchell, 541-962-1307, or Andy Lindsey, project engineer at Anderson-Perry & Associates, 541-963-8309.
