Main Avenue project will take two years to complete
The Park Rapids Main Avenue street and utility construction will be phased over two years because of difficulty acquiring federal funds.
At last month's City Council meeting, city engineer Jon Olson said the $730,000 in federal money allotted for the project will be funneled to the city through the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The money hasn't reached MnDOT yet so that won't leave enough time to start the project early this spring and complete it in one summer.
