Another spring, another big dig
The view from the parking lot of Workmen's Market Monday morning defines the recent Helper landscape: Balanced Rock is perched on the top of the cliff to the north, while in the the foreground, heavy equipment, a trench and road closed barricades fill the frame. Silver Spur Construction of Draper began work last week on this year's phase of the city's $19 million infrastructure rebuilding. The project has begun in the first area, all streets northwest of the Main and Orchard Street intersection. Eventually, the project will upgrade water, sewer and storm drainage on all streets west of Roosevelt, north of Canyon and south of 10th North streets. The company said that there may be occasional interruption of service, but residents will be given 24 hours notice of any planned cutoffs. People are asked to keep their vehicles in driveways and off streets in the the affected areas. Workmen's intends to remain open seven days a week through the construction period, which is scheduled to continue until Halloween.
