Road building in Monticello begins

On Tuesday, July 6, crews from the LeGrand Johnson Construction Company of Logan and Moab began rebuilding ten streets within the City of Monticello. Their first target is Second North from the highway to the elementary school. Installation of new sewer and water lines is part of the contract. Those streets which have infrastructure that should be replaced within a few years will have new utility lines installed concurrently with this road construction so that the new roads will not have to be dug up again. City officials state that roads built to the specifications called for in the contract should last for 30 years. The total contract is for $2,000,000. Funds came to the City from the CIB (Community Impact Board), with $1 million an interest free loan. The other million is a grant. San Juan Record
