First silo delivered and second silo delivery delayed: Traffic impacts expected TOMORROW

Delivery of one of the two silos needed for the Improved Corrosion Control Treatment Project was delivered May 12, 2021. The delivery of the remaining 50’ tall structure has been delayed and is now expected to arrive at the Lusted Hill facility, on the corner of Cottrell and Lusted Road tomorrow morning, Saturday, May 15. This delivery may cause traffic delays along Cottrell as the silo is maneuvered onto the Water Bureau property. Flaggers will direct traffic during this time.
