Road construction season is underway in Morris

The East 2nd Street improvement project is underway in Morris.

Breitbach Construction of Elrosa, Minn., is the general contractor for the project, which includes infrastructure replacement and repair work from Atlantic Avenue to past the RFC.

In his blog,,Morris City Manager Blaine Hill reports that work will be done in phases to insure that people have access to their property during construction. The first phase will be the area near the University of Minnesota Morris. A new access road connecting to the Morris Elementary School rear driveway will be built first to allow continued access to the Regional Fitness Center and the Physical Education building. This will be a permanent access road that will be gated and used during sporting and special events. Buses will no longer be allowed to park along 2nd Street as they have in the past. The project will continue up 2nd Street and then down to Atlantic Avenue. Residents will receive a letter from the City with information about the project and a weekly time and place they can come and ask questions.

The whole project should be completed by the end of October.
