Crews prepare the road bed for another concrete pour Monday afternoon at the intersection of Morrill Road (pictured, looking north) and Union Drive. An extended version of the intersection closed July 8 to repair the deteriorating road, and the Morrill leg of the project is nearly complete. The contractor currently is installing a new storm sewer under Union Drive north of Lake LaVerne, with additional sections of roadway prepped and paved as they become available. The project is on schedule for completion next week (Aug. 16), with the roads reopening Monday morning, Aug. 19.
