Crews began work on a major Fairgrounds Road renovation this past week.

First up, a walking path/sidewalk on the south side of the street leading to the Hamilton High School. The dirt was being moved and the foundation was being prepared for the new surface, replacing a weed-infested ditch.

The main road project has been scheduled for this construction season and KLYQ will keep you updated as to traffic detours and closures. At the end of all the work, the road in this high growth area of Hamilton will be wider and safer for both cars and pedestrians.
