Intermittent road restrictions continue as hydro project progresses

Intermittent road restrictions continue as hydro project progresses

Mar 16

The mild weather this week has allowed crews at the Red Rock Dam to continue working day and night to prepare the site for construction of a powerhouse and intake structure that will comprise the Red Rock Hydroelectric Project (RRHP). Short-term road closures, directed by the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, will occur in the overnight hours every three to four days as crews move large rebar cages from the North Tailwater staging area to the construction area on the upstream side of the Dam. In addition, Highway T-15 will be restricted to one lane every three to four days to facilitate staging of the concrete trucks to ensure worker and public safety as the wall element sections are poured. A pilot car and flaggers will be directing traffic whenever there is a lane closure. Ten elements of the 240-foot diaphragm wall have been completed, with 16 elements still to be placed.

Short-term road closures planned for early Friday

Mar 05

A rolling roadblock will occur for up to two hours beginning at 3:30 a.m., Friday, March 6 to accommodate the movement of a large re-bar cage that will be used in the construction of the Red Rock Hydroelectric Project.

Road closures will begin at the North Tailwater construction area and move down 216th Place to T-17, south on T-17 to G-46, west on G-46 to T-15 and north on T-15 to the upstream construction area of the Red Rock Hydroelectric Project. As the re-bar cage movement is completed at each section of road, that section will be reopened.

In addition, T-15 will be restricted to one lane throughout the day and a pilot car and flaggers will be directing traffic until the concrete placement is completed. Project officials estimate that the work will be finished at midnight Friday.

Missouri River Energy Services, which is building the Red Rock Hydroelectric Project expects the project to be completed by early 2018. When complete, it will produce 36.4 megawatts of electricity – enough to meet the needs of about 18,000 homes.
