Three blocks of 100 East in Richfield are closed to traffic for the next several weeks while the road is reconstructed. The project is being accomplished utilizing federal grant money through the small urban development program. The same type of funding was used for the reconstruction of the west portions of 300 North in 2010 and 500 North in 2004.
The city has to pay some $70,000 of the total $1.07 million cost of the project, with the federal grant program covering the balance. Staker Parson Companies DBA Hales Sand & Gravel is the general contractor for the project. The reconstruction of 100 East is set to continue with a second phase tentatively slated for 2015 or 2016. The second phase would take the project from Center Street to 300 South. Richfield Reaper
