Petersburg’s new library building gets roof

Work continues this fall on Petersburg’s new public library building at the corner of Haugen Drive and Second Street. Contracting company ASRC McGraw Constructors has put up walls, roof beams and most of the roof itself and plan to work on the building through the winter. Construction of the $3.9 million dollar building started up late last spring. For an update on the work, Joe Viechnicki stopped by the work site and spoke with Dan LaForce the city’s onsite construction administrator for the project.
