Construction expected to delay traffic moved to next week

Construction work that was expected to close lanes of Parmenter Street this week has been delayed until next week, according to a release from the city of Middleton.

The development of the new Parmenter Center building at 2501 Parmenter Street, just north of the creek, will require construction of a water service pipe from the public main on the west side of the street to the new building, officials said.

The contractor had intended to install the pipe this week, but a necessary design change will require a slight delay to get additional parts, according to the release. The contractor now plans on doing the work the week of Oct. 27.

The work will not require closing Parmenter Street or any driveways, but it will require lane reductions and shifts, officials said. Sidewalk access on one side of the road will be open to pedestrians during most of the project.
