Hennepin 4th of July Celebration

Hennepin Holding Payment on Street Project

The main east-west route in the village got an overhaul and new pavement more than a year ago, but the job’s not done, Hennepin officials say.

Hennepin Village Board this week reiterated its position that the earthwork along the street has not been completed, and is withholding about $29,000 from Advanced Asphalt, said village president Kevin Coleman.

The contractor did re-seed the berm along the road in spring and then “a gully washer” washed that away. Some hydro-seeding work was done this fall, but the stretch east of 11th Street has not been restored, Coleman said.
