The 2019 construction season is nearing and a number of projects are planned for this year. Below I will try to keep the public posted on progress on different projects throughout the year.

2019 Street Construction
Construction season in the City of Fennimore is in full swing and City of Fennimore streets will once again be tore up for part of the summer. Streets on the list for reconstruction include 4th Street (from Garfield to the east dead end), Monroe Street (from 3rd to 4th), 3rd Street (from Monroe to Roosevelt), and 6th Street (from Garfield Ct. to Jackson). 6th Street and the east end of 4th Street will not be fully reconstructed, we will only be sagging and deteriorated portions of the curb & gutter and the asphalt surface. The other streets will be reconstructed with 4th Street getting new water main and Monroe Street getting a new sanitary sewer main. We will also be finishing the south end of the Madison Street to 18th Street and will be constructing a turn-around on the south end of Monroe Street.
2019 Prairie Cemetery Construction
With the new addition to the cemetery in place now, we will continue with construction of roads this year. A road along the west side that borders with St. Mary’s was constructed last year. This year we plan to construct an east drive loop.
Waste Water Treatment Plant Construction
Major construction on the existing waste water treatment plant (WWTP) has been in progress for about 22 months now. We switched over to the new treatment process last August. The contractor reached substantial completion in February. There are still be several months of construction left, with all of the site work to complete this spring and summer. The project is expected to be complete in September, 2019. We are looking forward to hosting an open house this fall to show off the new facility.
