Fair Meadow widening, reconstruction passed by Council

The widening of Fair Meadow Drive in the block where McDonald’s and Kwik Star are located got the City Council of Webster City’s go ahead Monday.

The project will, among other things, widen the road by a total of six feet, according to Biridiana Bishop, assistant city manager.

In addition, a sidewalk will be installed on the street’s north side.

But the broader spectrum of the Fair Meadow Drive Widening and Reconstruction project includes multiple other improvements, according to a memo included in the City Council meeting packet. They include:

Pavement rehabilitation and roadway pavement replacement;

Roadway widening through the primary commercial section of the corridor to accommodate a center left turn lane and truck turning movements, including storm sewer modifications;

Sidewalk construction on the north side of the roadway to provide for connectivity from Des Moines Street to Superior Street;

Water main replacement;

Sanitary sewer repairs;

Storm sewer repairs and replacements; and,

Construction staging and parcel access accommodations.

A project information meeting was held on Nov. 30 with five of the eight impacted property owners, according to the memo. They “were pleasantly in favor of the project.”
