BALD HILL ROAD WORK BEGINS MONDAY – EXPECT DELAYS – DETOUR ADVISED
From the Thurston County Roads & Transportation Services Department:
This project involves improvements to 3.6 miles of Bald Hill Road between Vail Road and Smith Prairie Road consisting of: widening to provide for 11 lanes and 5 wide paved shoulders, straightening sections of the road, improving drainage, and reconstructing and improving the intersection of Smith Prairie / Lawrence Lake Road . Prime contractor for the $3.1 million federally funded project is Tucci & Sons Inc of Tacoma , WA .
February 21, 2008
Work on this project began in June 2007. The road right-of-way has been cleared and existing fences relocated. In August 2007 the work was suspended to allow for utility companies to relocate overhead and underground cables. We anticipate that the contractor will resume road construction work in April 2008 [Monday, April 7, 2008 is the official start date].
Significant traffic delays will occur when the road construction resumes. Motorists are urged to use the alternate route which will be signed for the publics convenience. Please use extra caution and Give em a Brake when traveling through the construction zone. We appreciate the publics patience and cooperation during the construction of this much-needed road improvement project.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the project, please call Dave Nichols, Construction Engineering Manager, at 754-3355 x7817 or by email at email@example.com
