This weeks progress will consist of:

West Side mid-block curb pouring.
East Side mid-block curb forming.
West Side sidewalk forming.
Under grounding electrical for street lights & 110 volt outlets completed.

Curbs and sidewalks on both sides of the road down to Railroad Street will be completed prior to the pavement being demolished and replaced. Once the pavement has been removed, a road base consisting of large gravel/cobble will be put down. Traffic will be able to travel on this road base. When the time to pave comes (not on a three week outlook yet but stay tuned) both mid-block and lower-block sections will be paved roughly at the same time (hopefully within two-three days of each other). This will be done closer to the end of the project and coordination will be done at that time with business and residents on Cascade Avenue. One lane of traffic will remain open at all times on the lower block of Russell with the exception of a 4 to 5 hour window needed to let the pavement by the rail road tracks cool down prior to reopening to traffic. Passenger vehicles will be able to use the Kanaka Creek underpass. We will coordinate with businesses to accommodate for truck deliveries at the time of paving.

For residents and businesses located on Russell Street, thank you for being accommodating while your street frontage is undergoing construction.

Stay safe,
Karl Russell
