Crete Public Works is fixing a water main break on Moray Court, which should be completed today. On Main Street, a sinkhole to a sanitary sewer is being repaired and should be done tomorrow.
Construction crews have been hard at work, replacing the creek culvert on Haweswood Drive. Constructed some 60 years ago, the original metal culverts were severely rusted and partly caved in and could eventually result in the roadway collapsing if not replaced.
Complicating and delaying the project further, was the discovery of unmapped utility cables, and both AT&T and ComED had to be called to perform an inspection. The cables were found to no longer be in use, and the crew was able to safely cut them before continuing.
Construction is now completed and the road is open again.
The new culverts should last for about a century.
