More milling on Columbia Avenue this week in Rossland

Rossland will see another big week with the area being worked on spanning most of our downtown.

  • Jul. 4, 2012 5:00 p.m.

This is the ninth installment of a weekly update column courtesy of the city’s Columbia Project Communications Task Force.

Rossland is now at the peak of this summer’s construction.

We will see another big week with the area being worked on spanning most of our downtown.

Asphalt milling will be taking place on the South side of Columbia as well as Washington.

The waterline is being installed from Queen to St. Paul and should be finished this week.

Next week, sidewalks on Columbia will be removed block by block starting at Spokane, while maintaining access to businesses.  Digging into Washington St. will also start next week.

The underground infrastructure work should be completed in two weeks, when the laying of the final Columbia roadway sub-base will begin.

“The mayor is in:”

Mayor Granstrom will be holding weekly office hours, welcoming drop-in visits to him at Rossland City Hall from 10:30-11:30 a.m. every Tuesday.

Please contact us at columbiaproject@rossland.ca with your comments, concerns, ideas, or questions.

The phone number for technical questions and concerns is 250-362-2328.
