Work begins this week on rebuilding the western block of Fairgrounds Road by US 93 in Hamilton.

The work will close that portion of Fairgrounds Road and detours will be in place on Old Corvallis Road and Marcus to the north and south of the project.

The BJ's Restaurant parking lot can be accessed off of US 93 alongside Global Wireless, immediately north of the cafe.

The closed section of Fairgrounds Road will be dug up and rebuilt with a wider road, curbs and gutters, part of a general improvement plan that has been ongoing on the length of the road. LS Jensen Ready Mix and Construction is the contractor with engineering by WGM. For more information, the Hamilton Public Works Department is 363-6717.
