State Aid Overlay work to continue this week in downtown Albert Lea

Street work will begin this week in the downtown area. The process will start with Ulland Brothers milling the top two inches off the streets on Thursday and Friday. Next week, they will adjust the manhole and water valve covers to the finished road level. While the work is being done, streets will be closed, and on-street parking will be limited. Once the milling process is complete, on-street parking will be reopened.

The streets affected are:

  • Clark Street from St. Mary Avenue to East Main Street
  • Washington Avenue from West Main Street to Fountain Street
  • Newton Avenue from East Main Street to Clark Street
  • Bridge Avenue from Clark Street to Fountain Street

This schedule is dependent upon the weather and is subject to change.
The City of Albert Lea’s mission is to deliver exceptional services that enhance the quality of life for current and future generations.
