COTTONWOOD -- Alliance Street Works, contracted to re-build 10th street in Cottonwood, poured the black ribbon of asphalt between the new curbs, sidewalks and gutter Wednesday.

City project manager David Hausaman says there will be some punchlist type items for another month, but once the striping is completed the project can re-open to through traffic.

The project, during early planning had hoped to add in some flood control work on the Railroad Wash channel that floods Cochise, a cross street.

A reclaimed water line had also been proposed, but both of those projects were scrapped to keep the Community Development Block Grant project within the budget.

The city did replaced 40-year-old water lines with a new 8-inch water line in advance of the construction.

During a March hearing on the project residents said there were near-misses of pedestrians, often kids who walked near the roadway edge, since the roadway has long been used as a short cut from Mingus to Main. There are now sidewalks on both sides, where before there were none.

Cottonwood Council members were elated to be working with a local contractor. Alliance Streetworks, a former California contractor which relocated to Camp Verde, submitted the lowest of 11 bidders at $327,637 which gave the project some breathing room. The bid was significantly below competitors' bids. The block grant provided only $230,000 of the construction project, that was estimated at nearly $440,000
