There’s going to be plenty of road construction in Pierz come spring of 2024.

At its Oct. 23 meeting, the Pierz City Council approved $2.208 million in work for its portion of street improvements. The Rich Prairie Sewer and Water District (RPSWD) will hold its public hearing for the portion of utility work on these streets Nov. 15, expected to total $773,701.92.

Jerod Griffith with Short Elliott Hendrickson (SEH), the city’s engineer, was on hand to give an outline of the work to be done, during a short public hearing prior the Council’s approval. He had presented an informational meeting for the public the week prior, as well.

The 2024 street and utility project includes the reconstruction of Summer Street, First Avenue Southwest, First Avenue Northeast, Peter Avenue and Cassie Alley.

In giving a little background, Griffith said SEH, along with the city, in 2010 and again in 2018, completed a pavement condition study.
