Utility work along Cottage Grove Avenue SE is completed and pavement has been replaced.  Weather permitting, Cottage Grove will reopen to traffic by the end of the day today. Please use caution when driving through the work site, as construction staff will still be in the work area.  34th Street SE will remain closed.
Beginning next week, sanitary sewer installation will begin on 34th Street south of Cottage Grove Avenue. Water main installation will follow shortly, along with pavement replacement. This work will be staged to maintain access to homes; property owners will have access initially via 34th Street, then later via Cottage Grove Avenue as sanitary sewer and water main work progresses.  We anticipate removal of the old bridge and installation of the new box culvert will begin in 4 to 6 weeks.  
As always, if you have questions about the project, you are welcome to contact a member of our project team. We appreciate your patience!
