Alliant starting conduit project in Decorah

Alliant Energy has notified its Decorah customers about a project begun recently.

Directional drilling crews from West Union Trenching will install conduit under the right-of-way area between the street and the sidewalk. The project should take two to four weeks. Electric service and other utilities along the route will not be affected.

Work is starting near the intersection of Highway 9 and Division Street. Crews will move up Mill Street and turn onto Main Street. At the end of Main Street, they’ll turn and continue to bury conduit under Montgomery Street until they reach Alliant Energy’s substation.

A restoration crew will return the areas to their original condition. They will complete restoration work in a few days, weather permitting. Otherwise, restoration will be done as soon as the weather allows.

Anyone with concerns or questions is asked to call 1-800-ALLIANT.
