The foundational work for rebuilding Main Street in downtown Fort Morgan has begun.
 
Joe Conway, professional land surveyor, and Scott Klinker, survey crew chief, began by locating the official city maps and boundary layouts and locating the primary benchmarks that govern the official elevation.
 
The two surveyors work for Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc., the Denver firm that was chosen to do the design and engineering work for the city’s downtown infrastructure improvement project.
