Effective 21 July 2014, the intersection of Palmer and 1st Streets will have the stop signs reconfigured. Traffic using Palmer Street will be required to stop and the traffic on 1st Street will move freely through the intersection. This configuration will allow drivers to become acclimated to the new configuration before traffic volumes increase. Your patience is appreciated. Please contact Jim Hatheway, Project Manager at 874-7912 if you have any questions or concerns.
The Delta City Council has approved the much awaited contract amendment with the Union Pacific Railroad that will allow for the completion of the alternate truck route project. The amendment is needed to allow both parties to close on the anticipated exchange of property while certain remediation work is being completed. The exchange of property has been the primary holdup preventing the removal of old railroad tracks and clearing the way for the remaining road construction. City Engineer Jim Hatheway stated, “This certainly clears a significant hurdle. We have some work to do yet to prepare the newly constructed tracks and start building the southern half of the road, but the project is still progressing forward.”
Work specified in this notice is subject to change due to weather conditions and/or other unforeseen circumstances. The City will endeavor to keep the information as up to date as possible.
