Ongoing Road Repairs throughout LeClaire:

The PWD continues to make road repairs as needed (i.e. patching, digging out sections of bad road surfaces, repairing and replacing sections of road surfaces, culvert replacement).  Please watch for dips in roadways, rough road surfaces, etc... around town.   Sometimes this occurs without warning or continues through a number of days.  This is an ongoing process throughout the year.  Thank you for your patience as we work to improve LeClaire's roadways.
