EAGLE POINT, Ore. — A major road in front of two elementary schools is partially closed.
Construction is well under way on Main Street in front of tiny butte elementary and what will soon be hillside elementary. Crews are laying storm drainpipes under the pavement to account for the new school and future homes.
Drivers passing through that section of main street will likely experience delays, officials state in some cases, 20 minutes long. Work began early this summer and has hit a few roadblocks along the way.
Robert Miller, the director at Eagle Point Public Works, explains, “When they opened up the streets, they realized they had sewer and some of the utilities were a tiny bit more complicated and that caused some delays that were a tiny longer than anticipated.”
Construction is expected to finish at the end of august, or early September, before school is back in session.
