Construction nearly done


Because of those regulations, the Third Street project is over budget from the initial bid, but another road construction project on Ninth Avenue in Camanche is under budget.

To make up for the difference, city officials are attempting to transfer STP funds from the Ninth Avenue project to the Third Street project, but are unsure if the rules and regulations will allow it.

"There are rules for what you can do with this money," said Roth, adding that if the the city is unable to transfer those funds, there are other areas in the city's street repair budget to make up the difference.

With construction wrapping up and funding issues being resolved, Roth feels the Third Street project has been a relatively quick project.

"I would guess we are looking at less than two weeks for completion," Roth said. "This whole project has been a real success story for Camanche and a real success story for the RPA."
