Drivers of 11th Street rejoice! The paving portion of the road upgrade is nearing its completion, and only about a week past deadline.
The repaving of 11th Street, from in front of Montana State University-Northern past Havre Middle School to 16th Avenue West, began in June and was scheduled to be complete on Sept. 28. A few days past that point, Montana Department of Transportation Project Manager Beth Doran said she still needed to see the crew’s latest schedule, but that paving work should be done by the weekend.
“They should finish the main approaches today and then they’ll have to do some paving in the alleys, ” Doran said. “I’m betting they’ll be done this week. ”
Though they won’t be as disruptive for traffic, the crew will have to stick around a little longer to get all of the signs up and to clean the streets and sidewalks they have just built.
