SARTELL (WJON News) -- Drivers in Sartell will have another north-south option for getting around town with the completion of 19th Avenue South.

City Engineer April Ryan of SEH says final paving took place this week and striping will be done Friday with the road opening this weekend.

Phase two of the project focused on the north side, from 12th Street South to the roundabout at 6th Street South.
