Almota Road damaged by construction
June 25, 2020
COLFAX – Friendly damage ensued on Almota Road last week.
"Did you get the scrapers unstuck?" asked County Commissioner Art Swannack Monday morning during a work session.
"Yes and no," said Mark Storey, Public Works director. "Scrapers blew out a portion of the road that had not been blown out."
On June 17, 45-foot long scraper vehicles from contractor M.A. DeAtley were cutting soil from one part of the road-widening project south of Colfax and hauling it to another part. In the process, the heavy equipment damaged the road (stripped to gravel) over an estimated 700 to 1,000 feet.
