Road construction is almost finished on the extension of 28th Street northward to McKinley Street, including a sewer connection to the Perrywood Apartments project.
The Perry City Council let a $225,000 contract in May to the Slater-based Absolute Group for the construction of the street, which involves 2,000 square yards of sub-grade preparation and sub-base, 1,800 square yards of Portland cement concrete, utility adjustments, grading and other associated work.
A spokesperson with Bolton and Menk, the project managers, said Absolute Infrastructure constructed the storm water sewer and sanitary sewer for the street, including a lateral sewer line to the Perrywood Apartments under construction at 28th and McKinley streets. Absolute Concrete then paved the street, the Bolton and Menk engineer said.
Construction of the Perrywood Apartments, two 30-unit, market-rate multi-family residential apartment houses, began in July. The units will be built in two phases and should be ready to occupy by the spring of 2021, according to Perrywood Apartments spokesperson Scott Sullivan.
At its Sept. 14 meeting, the Perry City Council approved the placement of a stop sign at the north end of 28th Street. In August the council approved a zoning change from residential duplex to planned unit development on the 11.78-acre parcel south of the Perrywood project, clearing the way for the development of a mix of single-family houses and duplexes.
