December 5, 2014 – Ottumwa, Iowa – Underground utility work by Alliant Energy, Mediacom Cable and Century Link continues in the alley south of 300 block of E. Main Street. Contractor J&R Underground will be closing the alley under the Jefferson Street Bridge starting on Monday, December 8th. Crews will be boring for a large conduit in that area. The work should take several weeks to complete. In addition to the traffic closure, some of the public parking area near the bridge will be closed off during this work.
The west alley entrance to the parking lot area off of South Green Street has been re-opened to traffic. Businesses will have access to parking from Green during the construction.
