OTTUMWA-Municipal Pipe Tool Company continues working on the Phase 5, Division 3 Sewer Rehabilitation project. Over the past few months, a majority of this work has been occurring mostly in residential neighborhoods. The focus of this work is about to change. In the next few days, work will commence in more heavily used traffic areas including Albia Road and Richmond Avenue. While this work is being completed, temporary delays and lane closures can be expected.
Ottumwa motorists should expect temporary lane closures at the intersection of Richmond and Ferry. Drivers should watch for construction equipment and workers in the area and be extremely cautious at this busy intersection. The lanes at Richmond and Ferry will be closed as needed for the work and re-opened to traffic as quickly as possible. The work will be taking place over the next two to three weeks.
