HURLEY — The U.S. 51 utility reconstruction project, which began on April 29, is entering its second phase, and construction officials are reporting positive results so far.

“Things are going well,” said Jeff Seamandel, project manager, at a Tuesday evening meeting of the Hurley City Council.

Seamandel, who is employed by MSA Professional Services in Rhinelander, said that sanitary sewer and water utilities have been replaced on the highway stretch from Silver to Copper streets.

The next phase getting underway is from Copper to Iron streets.
