The long-anticipated reconstruction of Mendonsa Road should be completed in late November.
The city is spending $1.2 million for storm drains, rebuilt base and new asphalt for the half-mile stretch of road off Alexander Street.
The improvements have been discussed for years. Work began in late September.
"I'm thinking we'll have this completed around Thanksgiving. Won't that be a good reason to give thanks?" City Manager Greg Horwedel said.
