108 E. Court Street-Closure of Sidewalk and Parking Spaces

Intertec will be performing some drilling at 108 E. Court Street in Richland Center on August 22nd for BMO Harris Bank.  They will be drilling two 2-inch to 4-inch diameter holes through the concrete at the front of the BMO Bank building.  Given the limited access in that area, it’s likely they will need to perform these borings within the north right-of-way of Court Street (within the sidewalk), and will need to limit access to the sidewalk within the work area.  The work will be completed within one day and they will patch the holes with concrete when done.
