Flandreau construction projects moving smoothly

Posted: Monday, Dec 31st, 2012

Walls of the FSST Community Center Gymnasium are fully constructed and crews will continue to work to finish the outside of the building in the coming weeks. Crews work to fix the display board outside of First National Bank. The sign has been shut down for a several years and was turned back on last week. The south wall of the Flandreau City Shop was heavily damaged in a windstorm earlier this year. Crews will be fixing that existing wall as well as adding an additional 100 feet towards the south.

Even with this winter weather, two Flandreau buildings are coming along as scheduled, and an iconic display board returns to its rightful place on main street.

Crews have been constructing the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe Community Center since the beginning of October but the Tribe has been working on designs for the building since May. The exterior walls of the gym are fully erect and crews will be working on the roof shortly. Although you cannot see it with all of the fresh snow, the curbs and gutters have been installed for the parking lot as well. The completion date for the entire project is scheduled for June of 2013.

The crew of 12th and Marion Crossing, LLC have been working on the expansion of the Flandreau city building through the rough winter weather. As of last week, crews had poured footers for the building and will start trying to enclose the new area so they can work on pouring the concrete floor. The $482,450 project that will add an additional 100 feet to the shop, started in early November and pending the weather conditions and steel delivery, the project should be completed by late March or early April.

Finally, a long time fixture of Flandreauís main street has been returned to its glory. The display board outside of the First National Bank that displayed the time and temperature for so many years has been fixed. The display board has been inactive for a handful of years and was turned back on last Thursday for all to see. Letís just hope that we donít see any negative numbers on there in the near future
