South Fossil Street Reconstruction Continues, Concrete Pour for Southbound Lanes Scheduled for Friday and Monday

South Fossil Concrete Pour 10-16-17Crews from Paver's Inc., the contractor in charge of the South Fossil Street Reconstruction Project in Russell, are scheduled to pour the concrete for the southbound lanes Friday, October 13 and Monday, October 16 from 7 AM to 7 PM.

Traffic in the work zone will be affected during these periods.

Southbound traffic will be diverted to the far east lanes through the construction zone and northbound traffic will be diverted to Front Street.

The newly poured traffic lanes will then cure for at least a week.

Once the southbound lanes have properly cured, crews from Paver's Inc. will begin construction of the curbs and gutters, followed by construction of the driveways and intersections on the west side of the roadway, which were disturbed by this project.

This $2.6 million project is being funded by more than $2 million in grant funds.
