Photos: Building better streets

Construction crews work at Fourth and Franklin streets on Friday. The city has two projects going, rebuilding Main street from Fifth to Seventh streets and then rebuilding Dixon Avenue from Goldbelt to Calhoun avenues. The Dixon and Main streets reconstruction project is replacing water, sewer, storm drainage, curb, gutter and essentials involved in that work. The project costs $1.1 million and the Dixon Avenue portion is expected to be completed in July, with the remainder due Sept. 15. Fourth Street also has construction for $185,000 and is expected to be complete Aug. 15. Design for the projects were done by Dowl HKM, a Pacific Northwest firm, and Miller Construction is contracted to do the work.
