The first block of Main Avenue businesses have been hooked up to the city's new water main.

"It's been going fairly, fairly well," said project manager Jon Olson.


Meanwhile removal crews continue to push southward, removing pavement and sidewalk concrete.

Because many of the Main Avenue buildings are a century old, crews have found some obstacles as they hook up the water to the main.

For instance, the Tin Ceiling's foundation is made of rock.
