Final layer of bituminous placed downtown this week
Crews began placing the final layer of bituminous on downtown Park Rapids side streets Tuesday morning.
The streets are barricaded for the work but parking is available on Main Avenue, Pleasant Avenue and city lots while the side streets are closed.
Side streets were expected to be open by Wednesday evening in time for Crazy Days sales downtown.
Paving was also expected on the southern portion of the project by the end of the week. Crews were progressing with curb and gutter work on the southern portion of the project.
Alleys should also be paved and completed by the end of the week, including the busy alley behind the post office.
Later this summer striping and final detail work will be done on the downtown portion.
