The road closures and construction in Hancock will soon be coming to an end.
Over the summer, the City of Hancock did about $16.5 dollars worth of construction. Around $11 million went for water and sewer infrastructure upgrades, and it's estimated that the sewer project will be finished by early November.
"Most of the cuts that you see that still need to be replaced have either been water service laterals; we did about 240 in the city. So, they're scattered all over the city. Then we did about 200 sewer manhole upgrades, so a lot of the holes or cuts are still not filled yet. We're waiting for pavement. Those are sewer cuts," said Hancock City Manager Glenn Anderson.
As for the water project, the city manager says it will probably carry over into the first two months of next year.
