As scheduled, White’s Civil Contracting started construction on the Edgewood Place Reconstruction Project on Tuesday, July 6th, 2021.  Edgewood Place was closed to vehicular traffic on Thursday, July 8th, 2021, from Colorado Avenue to Texas Avenue, that allowed for the contractor to complete the planned removal of trees in that area. The contractor was then scheduled to proceed with water and storm drainage pipe installations, but the production of these pipe materials has been delayed.  The delays are largely due to Covid-19 production impacts, high demand for plastic pipe, and plastic pipe resin shortages. It is uncertain at this time when pipe will arrive and the contractor will resume work.  That said, the City of White- fish and White’s Civil Contracting have agreed to a CONSTRUCTION SHUTDOWN that started at noon on Tuesday, July 13th, 2021.  At that time Edgewood Place was re-opened to vehicular traffic and will remain so for the foreseeable future. We are hopeful that construction activities will commence later this summer, but at this point we are not certain when work will resume.  Once that date is known, an update will be provided to the public.
