The Poplar construction project is still well over a year from being completed. Here's what the Oftededal Construction website says about the project.


The job involves installing approximately 3,100 lineal feet of 18 to 78-inch reinforced concrete storm pipe as well as water and sewer pipe (schedule 80 PVC or above material).


We will also be pouring approximately 3,550 lineal feet of curb and gutter and approximately 2,000 linear feet of sidewalk. When all is said and done, we will have poured 10,300 yards of concrete to complete the job.
