Storm sewer work tops agenda for weekly work on Iris Street
Cole Construction is working on storm sewer placement this week in phase II of the North Iris Street reconstruction project. The firm also will be removing pavement and will be grading on the second phase of the project, which is from the centerline of Commerce Drive to the center of the south exit from the Walmart Distribution Center (including the closure of the North Iris Street and Mapleleaf Drive intersection.
Detour signs have been placed around the construction area.
The section of North Iris from Winfield Avenue south to the entrance of the Walmart Distribution Center is open to Walmart traffic only.
A temporary gravel entrance has been made to Staat’s from Commerce Drive along the east side of Iris Street.
Warner Engineering, the engineering firm for the project, reminds motorists there will be an increased traffic load on North Iris from Commerce Drive to Washington Street and urges drivers to use caution when driving on this stretch of road. Warner also reminds motorists that there will be no outlet for through traffic north from Commerce Drive.
