It is anticipated that construction will begin in the summer of 2023 with all roads reopened in the fall of 2023. Construction will resume in the spring of 2024 and be completed in the summer of 2024.


The project will be funded by a combination of Prairie Dog Funds and Special Assessments to the benefiting properties. Special Assessments will be applied per City policy.


The existing water main and sanitary sewer is being replaced to minimize impacts and costs associated with breaks/failures. The street reconstruction is necessary because the existing street section has deteriorated significantly and has exceeded its life expectancy.
