Construction on East 3rd St. in Pella has caused a road closure for a few months in Pella, but the project is progressing quickly. Not only did the road need resurfacing, but utility lines under the roads surface needed work. Construction on East 3rd is expected to be completed by the end of Fall. Construction on West 1st St, which began at the same time as the construction on 3rd, has wrapped up. That street was part of the Back to Brick Program, and was rebuilt in brick based on guidelines given by the city council that all current brick roads will be rebuilt in brick.
