Hawley Road Update
The resident engineer is hopeful that all of the major sidewalk work should be completed by Friday.  In the middle of next week they will be placing the final surface of asphalt.  They are currently working on the traffic signals.  Landscapers are out today and top soil and sod will be placed from Prairie to the east of the project.  They will be installing brick pavers between the sidewalk and curb. The project is expected to be finished by the end of the month.  There will be a punch list to complete after that.
