2020 City of Willmar Construction Update

City of Willmar Construction Update 10/1/20

9th Street SE  - Willmar Ave to Pleasant View Drive
Street and Utility reconstruction

Paving of 9th Street SE is complete for 2020.  The contractor will return in the spring/early summer to place the final course of asphalt.  Feel free to use the street and your drives as you please.

14th Avenue to Pleasant View Drive

The contractor is placing topsoil, seed, and mulch, please water the grass seed. Experience has shown those who water and care for the seed have a much better chance of germination and healthy grass growth.   If you have an irrigation system, this is a good time for you to re-install the portion that was disturbed during construction.

If you have a sump pump that discharges onto the ground, a connection to the storm sewer has been provided for you behind the curb.  It is your responsibility to connect your sump pump to the storm sewer.  The Engineering Department will assist you in locating the connection point.

Mailboxes will be re-installed next week.

First Street – 19th Ave to WB USTH 71 Ramps
