Beginning Monday, March 23, at 7 a.m., the City of Columbia plans to improve safety on Rock Quarry Road by trimming the dead tree limbs along the right of way.
Arthur Ratliff Tree and Stump Removal, contractor for the City of Columbia Public Works and Community Development departments, will use flaggers to assist motorists through the work zone and maintain two-way traffic. Intermittent lane closures will occur between Stags Way and Capen Park Drive. Minor traffic delays are possible.
Motorists are urged to watch for workers in the roadway, obey the directions of flaggers and be prepared to slow down or stop. Motorists, nonmotorized transportation users and pedestrians are encouraged to find alternate routes if possible and to use extreme caution in the work zone.
The work associated with the lane restrictions is scheduled to be completed by Friday, March 27, by 7 p.m., weather permitting.
