Basswood Drive street improvements begin Aug. 20

The City of Rolla Public Works Department, in conjunction with Rainey & Son Construction, L.L.C., will begin substantial street improvements on Basswood Drive beginning Monday, Aug. 20 at 7 a.m., weather permitting. 
The Basswood Drive and Boxelder Drive Street Improvement project (#296), recently approved by the Rolla City Council, will include excavation, storm sewer installation, new curb and gutter, new driveway aprons, and subsequent 4-inch paving.
The excavation and road improvements on Boxelder Drive will begin immediately after the  street improvements are complete on Basswood sometime in October. 
It is anticipated that the entire street improvement project, including Boxelder, should be completed before the end of 2012, weather permitting. Caution signs and safety cones will be posted in the construction area, indicating lane closures, and for motorists to please drive carefully.
The City of Rolla appreciates the assistance, patience and cooperation of the public throughout the duration of this important street improvement project,” said Steve Hargis, Director of Public Works.
