Here are some photos from two streets recently reconstructed. Dawson Street is partially done. It was started last fall. The contractor went out of business before completion.

New sign to be posted at the city limits? It was either this or “Home of the Staal Brothers”. Winning chart. It wasn’t even close. Brings a tear to your eye doesn’t it?
