Weather Halting Main Street Construction

The Main Street construction project in Union has been put on hold due to the weather. City Administrator Russel Rost says the freezing temperatures have stalled concrete work for the last two weeks. The project has moved into the downtown area where a majority of the concrete work needs to be done. According to Rost, the completion date has not changed from early April but it all depends on the weather. At this week’s Board of Alderman meeting a change to the projects budget was considered. The additional funds would be used to replace 19 Bradford Pear trees and install additional benches.
