Body
PREAMBLE

The State of Wisconsin is currently planning utility work within the city right-of-way to replace badly deteriorated existing steam and condensate lines running from N. Park Street, east along the south side of Langdon Street. The work will require that Langdon Street be completely closed to vehicular traffic during the evening hours and that some of the work will be conducted during the hours of 7:00PM and 7:00AM.
