Construction on the new State Farm Insurance office continues as forms are set in place for new concrete sidewalks and driveway. Crews were busy Tuesday placing sand in preparation for the upcoming concrete pour.

Employees for Mansel Construction used compacting machines to compress sand before placing the wire mesh in place in anticipation of the pour early today.

The exterior of the building is complete and work is progressing on quickly on getting the concrete portion of the project.

The new State Farm office is located on the north side of East First Street opposite the current office at 601 East First that is on the south side of First Street. It is in the same building as Quint Liquor that will take over the State Farm space when the office moves out.

Demolition of the original structure on the site, that was originally a gas station, happened earlier this year. The structure and the original awning over location of the gas pumps came down very quickly.
