Redwood Falls to begin next phase of electricity distribution conversion in the downtown area
Tuesday, April 30, 2019
In 2018, the City of Redwood Falls began the conversion of the downtown business district to an underground electrical system.
Due to an early onset of cold weather, the first phase of that project was not completed, but as that work continues the process to start the second phase of the project is also going to begin.
That process moved forward April 16 when the city council approved a request from Chuck Heins, city public utilities superintendent, to solicit bids for the next phase.
The work as part of Phase 2 includes the alley between Third and Fourth streets from Minnesota Street east to Lincoln Street, as well as the alley between Second Street and Bridge Street. This will complete the conversion of the downtown area, said Heins.
