LA GRANDE – The City of La Grande Public Works Department has begun their extensive road construction project on 2ndStreet. Just a reminder, parts of 2nd Street will be closed for the next few months while excavation is done, however a detour is in place. Also, removal of curbs, sidewalk sections, and corner ramps in the project area will take place. Additionally, an aging 18-inch steel water main located with the roadway will be replaced with a ductile iron main. All questions regarding this project should be forwarded to the Public Works Department.
