Soil work delayed pond digging along Hwy. 61 in Cottage Grove

Soil work has delayed the completion of a drainage pond next to an expanded senior housing development in Cottage Grove.

Work on the pond near 80th Street and Highway 61 is expected to be completed by the spring, said Jennifer Levitt, the Cottage Grove city engineer.

Soil contaminated with traces of diesel fuel slowed work, she said.

The drainage pond is being constructed to service the South Point Ridge area, which includes a pair of senior living buildings.
