Construction underway on North Court

Construction has begun on N. Court. Drivers can expect road closures

Ottumwa residents will begin seeing construction on North Court Street.

The project will start with water main installation and storm sewer installation, followed by sanitary installation and paving.

Construction has already begun on the North Court and East Court intersection working to the top of the hill.

Drivers can expect road closures in the near future.

â??It's probably going to take until November to finish, weather permitting. The thing that's unique, or not unique, but hard to deal with on this project is itâ??s about 13% grade so it adds some challenges on the actual pavement itself and the construction,â?? said Lear Seals, Public Works Director.

The around $500,000 project is being funded through the local option sales tax.
