More contractors scheduled to arrive this week
Following a preconstruction meeting held last week for the North Bank Lane road improvement project, Tidewater Contractors are expected to arrive on site today to begin preliminary work such as placing road signs and conducting construction surveying and staking. Knife River Corporation, responsible for the restoration construction, will also begin mobilizing on site today.
Last week, work began on undergrounding the Coos-Curry Electric Cooperative powerline. The conduit was placed across the former pastures of the floodplain by trenching and the first of two bores under the river was initiated. The west bore was completed under the river and south bank and is now going up the hillside. This bore should be completed by Thursday and the conduit installed. When the west bore is complete the drilling rig will be shifted to the east and the east bore will begin. The large underground vaults have been installed on the north end of the project.
