Construction on DeKalb Street in Redwood Falls is almost finished.

The Redwood County Highway Department stated Thursday the final layer of bituminous paving was completed this week, but DeKalb Street will continue to be closed for the rest of this week. Local traffic is allowed to enter through the barricades, but through traffic will be required to find an alternative route.

The contractor’s striping crew plans to return early next week. DeKalb Street will be fully closed for the contractor to complete the striping work, then will fully open upon completion of the striping operation.
