Motorists are encouraged to avoid using Water Tower Road in both directions between Highway 22 and Highway 31. If one must use this stretch of road, they should do so with caution.

Water under the roadway froze during the recent winter storm, causing the pavement to buckle and numerous potholes to appear.

The City is receiving bids for the repair of this stretch of road. Due to weather/temperature related requirements for the application of asphalt paving, repairs will be made to the road in the March/April time frame.
