The Staley Road Project is currently slightly ahead of schedule for stage 1 (Springfield Avenue – Route 10 to Bradley Avenue). Patching is complete and Open Road Paving Company continues to work on pipe culvert extensions, sidewalk ramps, pipe under drains, concrete curb and gutter, full depth road widening, and earthwork items. Later next week, the paving crew will be laying the first layer of asphalt leveling binder on the deteriorated existing roadway. Stage 1 construction items are scheduled to be completed by the first of July. Open Road Paving Company has indicated they are planning to have the project complete by the early completion date of August 25. This will allow for the expected early harvest and earlier than normal grain deliveries into the Anderson grain elevators.
