Wet weather slows completion

(LE MARS)–The main line surface on a new street serving a growing industrial area in southwest Le Mars, Blue Diamond Drive, is ready for truck and other vehicle traffic. 


However, city administrator Scott Langel explains rain pushed back other work that’s needed before the street is open.


 Langel expects Blue Diamond Drive to be open in one week, weather permitting. The same is true of the Third Avenue Southeast white-topping project south of the Plymouth County Courthouse. Langel says the mainline as well as driveways and sidewalks approaches are in for the Third Avenue Southeast project.


Langel says Barkley Asphalt will do the asphalt work along the parking, adjacent to the Courthouse, and also the asphalt tapers needed on Third Street South. Barkley could be on the job June 25th
