West 5th Street Crossing Work Delayed By Rain

Delays continue on the West Fifth Street railroad crossing improvements.

The City of Storm Lake temporarily closed West Fifth Street at the two intersections of Otsego Street and West Fifth for the railroad to make repairs to the crossing.  It was originally planned to be completed by last Friday… but as city manager Keri Navratil says, there were delays in getting the work completed.

Tuesday’s rain prevented the asphalt work from being done, and Navratil says the contractor will finish the project as soon as possible so the street can be reopened to traffic.
