The contractor is expected to begin dike removal Friday between 7:30 and 9 a.m., according to the engineer’s office for the city of Jamestown. Initial removal operations will begin along Fourth Street Southwest in the area on the north side of Klaus Park. From there, the Hesco and sandbag dikes in the area north of Nickeus Park and near the Anne Carlsen Center will be removed. The contractor will continue work on dike removals and seeding operations until they are finished, which is anticipated on June 26.
The city asks the public to give the contractor and crews the room to work and drive carefully when around these operations.
The public is also asked not to remove dike materials. They should wait for the contractor to remove the materials in their areas, the city said.
Also, the plans for roadway repairs and reconstruction of streets damaged by the dike construction and removal since 2009 are being updated, according to the city engineer’s office. The city needs to wait for the completion of dike removals before it schedules these construction operations. The city anticipates starting in late July or early August. Weather permitting, the city intends to complete the work this year.
