The City of Pipestone is undertaking a construction project to improve the city streets and utilities along 7th Ave SW from 7th St to 11th St, 9th St SW from 8th Ave to 6th Ave, and 11th St SW from 8th Ave to east of 3rd Ave. The project includes full reconstruction of the street surfacing and underground utilities. Construction is scheduled to begin on June 12, 2017. The project completion date is November 3, 2017, but the contractor anticipates completion prior to that date. The contractor for the project is Quam Construction Company, Inc. from Willmar, Minnesota. In addition to their own staff, Quam Construction will also employ several subcontractors for the project. The City has already begun clearing trees in the project area in preparation for the contractor.
