Good weather has enabled dirt work and paving contractors to move at a very quick pace. Ron Wireman â€“ DLZ construction engineer on the project â€“ reported that the job was â€ś43.2 percentâ€ť done to the Marshall County Commissioners. All work is complete between S.R. 17 and the railroad; from the railroad to Lincoln Highway and the 9th Road connector and the cul-de-sac.
