Lakeside Drive Update (7/6/2021) 

The Street Department, in conjunction with McPherson County Public Works, is reconstructing Lakeside Drive from Maxwell to Kansas Avenue. All curb and gutter has been placed.  The roadway has been filled with asphalt millings and compacted. This portion of East Lake Side work is completed and the roadway is opened back up.


The roadway will be overlaid with 2" of hot mix asphalt at a later date.  The Street Department will now pull off of this project and reconstruct the 800 block of Elm Street. The Street Department did an excellent job.  It looks great.  This roadway will require maintenance until the overlay can be completed.

800 Block of North Elm Street Reconstruction (7/12/2021)

The 800 block of North Elm Street is being reconstructed by the Street Department.  Water services have been moved, and the top 6" of the subgrade have been scarified and re-compacted. The geo-grid and the base rock have been started.  The plan for this week is to finish the rock base and start constructing the new curb and gutter.
