Perry’s $1 million hot mix asphalt (HMA) resurfacing project is nearly complete, with OMG Midwest-Des Moines Asphalt and Paving this week overlaying the intersection of Sixth and Dewey streets and the city parking lot on Second Street south of the U.S. Post Office.
The project began in early June and resurfaced about 60 blocks of side streets in Perry.
Workers also leveled the concrete knockouts around the manhole covers on First Avenue this week, the final details of the repaving and lane reconfiguration that also began in June.
The First Avenue project was wholly financed by the Iowa Department of Transportation and cost Perry taxpayers zero dollars.
The Perry City Council approved Monday an amended ordinance for a stop sign on the recently paved 28th Street at McKinley Street.
