Report a Water Leak

WHAT's New In Engineering:

 – By

The RAISE Grant application was submitted in July.  Applications will be reviewed through the late summer and early fall.  We expect to hear the results of our application in the fall.

The SD DOT Transportation Alternative project for sidewalk along N. Ellsworth Road will be bid through the SD DOT late summer or early fall.  Construction may start this fall but the majority of the work will be in 2022.  The City staff  has completed the preliminary application for the round of funding for the second phase of this project.  The second phase would complete sidewalk to Highway 14/16.  Annual projects for street maintenance have been completed for  cracksealing, chip sealing, striping, and pot hole patching.  Several developments are preparing plans for their next phases.  The Well #10 Driling contract has been awarded. Drilling for the new well will begin very soon.  The Liberty Plaza Project is going strong.  Utility work for water, sewer, and stormsewer is nearly complete.  Pete Lien Ready Mix has started construction of a new batch plant site at the southeast corner of the Liberty / I-90 intersection.  Construction on the new Box Elder Event Center at the Courtyard Hotel at the Elk Vale I-90 interchange will begin soon.  The prime contractor, Scull Construction, has finalized the necessary contracts and are in negotiations with subcontractors.  This project should start construction soon.  Also, citizens may have noticed the heavy equipment doing earthwork on the vacant land at the southeast corner of the LIberty / Ellsworth intersection.  This is the site for the Liberty Plaza development which will be the home for a new City / Ellsworth Air Force Base recreational facility, mutliple commercial development lots, and a large residential housing area.
