(ATLANTIC) The Cass County Engineer’s Office has run into a problem with rock supply.
Cass County Engineer Charles Marker told the Cass County Board of Supervisors this morning that they have gotten some roads rocked, but now they are out of rock at the Atlantic quarry.
“They do have the stripping crew in, as soon as the stripping crew is done they are going to bring the crusher in, but you’re looking at probably the 1st to the middle of June of getting anymore rock out here,” explained Marker. “We’ve got a few stockpiles to hit the worst spots, but obviously we do not have rock to do any major roads.”
Marker said they are going to be working around contract rock and do some spot-rocking at the worst spots and also doing some driveways and culverts as weather permits.
In other activity, Marker said the deck has been removed on the Hopley Bridge by the Research Farm and the steel beams have been brought back into the yard to be re-used for other bridges in the county. He said Murphy Contracting is still waiting for Mid-American Energy to remove a power line on the south side of the bridge so they can continue work and break down the piers on the bridge. Meanwhile they are working on cleaning out the ditches while they wait until the power line is moved.
