Construction on Hawthorne Avenue moving along

Construction has been in full swing on Colville’s Hawthorne Avenue reconstruction project, which began May 2.

Some heavy downpours in mid-to-late June did set the project back about a few days, according to City Municipal Services Administrator Eric Durpos. But the projects is still on schedule to be completed before the 2016-2017 school year starts in Colville.

The existing road was completely removed and a massive underground utility installation began mid-June and will continue through the beginning of July.
