Eau Claire road project to go before city council a second time


Eau Claire (WQOW) - AnEau Claire roadproject is doing a u-turn and going back before the city council.

Constructionon Menomonie Streetwas already approved by the city council but after hearing from businessowners, the city council may be given another option.

Staffhere at the engineering division have re-looked at the project and we've come upwith an alternative that would allow Menomonie Street to stay open during construction," saidDave Solberg, City Engineer. "However, it would lengthen the time ofconstruction so instead of it wrapping up before the 4th of July, it wouldlikely last well into august right around when school is starting."

Therewill be a public hearing on the new proposal on March 24th.  The city council could then decide whichconstruction schedule to go with at its meeting the next day.
