T-15 may close for three months


Knoxville —

One of the conditions MRES has requested in its agreemen with the County is that the gravel roads be bladed twice a month. Schletzbaum said that is standard procedure. He does not foresee any interference with regular County maintenance while meeting the terms of the agreement with MRES. 

Radio said the general contractor for the project has not been selected. Bid packets have been sent to potential contractors in the past few days. In addition to getting packets out, MRES is still in the design phase and working on permits and licenses for the project. Radio said there is much more work to do before the project proceeds.

A contractor is expected to be chosen in the fall. Radio could not speak to specific road closures, but said that any time one in necessary, MRES will provide ample notice to those affected.
